Airplanes of the Czech aerobatic team Flying Bulls touched each other by the wings as they were performing at Aero India 2015 airshow in Bangalore. Fortunately, no one was either killed or injured in the incident.
The pilots of the Czech aircraft did not observe the required distance and approached each other too close. As a result, the propeller of one of the planes damaged the wing of the other plane. Luckily, the two ZLIN 50LX aircraft managed to land safely, Pravda.Ru says.
Exhibition organizers tried to stop reporters from covering the incident. It was said that reporters were asked to delete all videos of the incident. They were not allowed to approach the site of the landing of the aircraft either. The airshow was interrupted for about 30 minutes before it went on normally.
As many as 150,000 experts and 300,000 regular visitors are to attend the airshow in Bangalore before Saturday. A freelance correspondent of Pravda.Ru in said that interest in Russian military equipment at the show remains high.
