    Yak 18 F-AZYK accident 8/4/18 (Pas de Calais) Two fatalities

    https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=208984

    The aircraft crashed during aerobatics, having rolled inverted after a flypast. but with insufficient height to pull through, back to level flight.

            The CAA rule about not carrying passengers during displays would at least have saved one life. Very sad.

              FYI it was not during display. This was not an airshow. The aircraft was departing back to base after an afternoon memorial flypast with other historic plane offer WWI battlefield where hundreds of Canadians soldiers lost their lives.

                I wouldnt normally comment on this sort of occasion.
                I will observe though that as it was not an air show, why was the pilot conducting low aerobatics in front of an audience with a pax on board. Did the pax understand the risks, did they agree to them in advance, did the pilot have the competence to carry out the manoevre at low level with a pax on board.
                It is sad that it ended this way, but in my opinion seems like a last minute idea that was not thought through with two souls lost.
                Two families are now in shock and have suffered significant loss. First attenders to the scene will o doubt have suffers in some way and the onlookers have witnessed something that wasnt planned and shouldnt have happened.
                Professionalism must come first fun is the also ran.

                  Stupid tragedy.
                  Way too low.
                  Sad.

                  I thought he was going to do a roll, but when I saw beginning of loop I knew he will hit ground.
