Does anyone know which one it was?

My dad may have met the same pilot four days ago…

Edit: He did meet him…

Very sad. My favorite airshow team, losing a pilot, it’s very saddening.

That one was a midair collision. Not every crash is a terrorist attack.

Sam, this isn’t an attack. Remember accidents happen. Now if it is one, why would they be going after non hostile targets (unarmed, airshow teams?) it’s unreasonable…,

These are very old aircraft, flown very hard almost daily.

They have armed security around the jets and the fuel pumped into the jets are checked so it’s very very unlikely.
