What do I mean by cultural factors? The famous “laid back” Swedishness which eschews caution and places emphasis on individual judgment over strict enforcement of rules.
Carbon copy? One at high altitude and one just after take off?

The same number of unfortunate casualties and both accidents occurred during parachuting operations. That makes it a carbon copy?

Different aircraft types, different phase of flight, different drop zones.

Perhaps you could give us personal, first hand examples of this inherent “Swedishness” which sees an entire nation “eschew caution”?
