Bad news from France :( - (Crash)

In english and in a few words : it seems that a it's a Yak-18 which crashed and deintegrated in a small air show in north of France. Both pilots are dead.

 

Some people say that they wanted to do a looping from low level, and ended way too low to resource.

Other speak about a smoke appeared a few seconds before the crash.

 

Of course, rest in piece for both pilots. :(

And rest in piece for a collector plane that will never be repaired.

Thanks for the info. The old birds are dying out slowly, I'm afraid. Which is real sad.

Even sadder, when the pilots are also dead.
