> The plane hit the ground ahead of the spectator stands, exploding in a fireball and destroying a police vehicle parked inside the concertina-wire fence that defined the active runway area. The plane continued, cartwheeling for a distance before picking up the three-strand concertina-wire fence, crossing an emergency access road, slamming into the crowd, and hitting a parked ice cream van.

Also band Rammstein took its name from this event
I was at that air show a couple times a few years before this and remember reading about it and quite happy I wasn’t in Germany anymore. I always was in the area where a number of people were killed
Why would they perform that stunt so close to the crowd?
I remember seeing pictures of that event where people are running with their ripped clothes off. But if you look closer, you realise it’s not their clothes but their skin dangling of their bodies…
Yet another reason why Germans should never trust the Italian Military to do anything
It’s fascinating to see the range of reactions going on. From the parents sheltering their kids on the left to the guy full on sprinting in the opposite direction.
