Crash at air show claims the lives of hundreds of spectators

Description

The city of Lvov, July 27, 2002. The military airfield Sknylov was crowded with people who came to see an air show with military aircraft. Though, in seconds the show turned into a terrible massacre for its visitors. The pilots were going to make a high-flying stunt called "an oblique loop with a turn." Suddenly, the pilots realized their altitude was not sufficient for this trick. The aircraft started to drift down and down. Almost touching the ground, the pilots tried to get the plane to a safe altitude but its wing struck an Il-76 standing in the field. The Su-27 went out of control and smashed into the ground, with its pilots ejecting mere seconds before the tragedy. The out of control aircraft kept going into the spectators. The burning plane slid sideways on one wing through a crowd of standing spectators. Having skidded several dozen meters, the aircraft toppled over and exploded.
