Tragic Air Show: Commemorating Victims of the Ramstein Air Show Accident 25 years ago
The Ramstein air show disaster is 25 years old today. Memorial services will be organized to remember victims of this tragic accident in Rhineland-Palatinate Germany. Remember: Three military jets of the Italian aerobatic team “Frecce Tricolori” collided during their flight at a height of 40 meters.
As shown in the video below, one of the planes crashed like a fireball into the crowd. 70 people died, more than 1,000 were injured, 450 of them seriously. Terrible moment!
During the afternoon, survivors and family members will first gather at the memorial at the U.S. airfield before visiting the crash site. In the evening there will be an ecumenical memorial service in Ramstein.
