The Worst Air-Show in Mid-Air Collision

A pilot has been killed in a mid-air collision at a German air show showcasing retro planes.

Two planes collided during the show yesterday afternoon at an airfield in the province of Bavaria.

One of the pilots was able to perform an emergency landing and escaped to safety, but the other died after his plane crashed and caught fire, Die Welt reported.



The accident comes just two weeks after a female spectator was killed when a pilot lost control of a biplane during an air show close to the German city of Nuremberg.

The aircraft involved in the incident had swerved off the runway during takeoff and ploughed into a crowd of spectators, injuring 38.
