Spanish Pilot Dies

Yesterday, a Spanish aerobatics pilot died participating in an airshow in Portugal.

The mid-air collision, which occurred at 16.05h in Bejar, happened when two of the Yakstars display team clipped each other.

The pilot of the other aircraft involved survived the collision as he managed to land the damaged aircraft at the airfield. The Spaniard’s aircraft, however, smashed into the ground outside the perimeter of the airfield and resulted in the pilot dying upon impact.

The cause behind the collision remains unknown and the accident remains under investigation.
