The Ramstein air show disaster occurred in 1988.
Watch the terrifying moment 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!
The Plane that was supposed to be the “Arrow” in the Pierced Heart Maneuver misjudged his Altitude by about 20 Feet! Ironically, this group (Italian Air Force) had done the maneuver successfully at an airshow in France about 3 weeks earlier!
Here another video of this terrifying airshowcrash:
On the 25th memorial day, last year, commemorative services had been organized to remember victims of this tragic accident in Rhineland-Palatinate Germany.
The Ramstein airshow was the last time any aerobatic teams were allowed to fly over the crowd. It was a terrifying accident waiting to happen.
