This is via the about the #real-world-aviation category mods may close this it is there decision.

As it is an unfortunate truth that there are many small aviation incidences on a daily basis. We ask that you refrain from posting about these on the forum. This is due to the volume of topics we would otherwise get that would clog up the forum and dilute productive discussion of other topics.

Omg no! I’ve flown in this exact model of the plane. It’s such an amazing bird. Hopefully it wasn’t anyone I flew with in the Tiger Squadron out here in LA since the squadron is made of Nanchang’s and Yak aircraft. 😖

Why are there so many crashes in 2019? 😞

Every day there is an average of 3-4 crashes in most years! Some small warbird is significant, but not very much. 2019 has had a normal amount of aviation crashes.
