Looks like the "barrel rolling round the formation" pilot was the one who died. Think this is the third video I've seen of that type of manoeuvre going wrong.

That was what should have happened. Thanks!

Rather than ‘barrel rolling round the formation’ maybe the a/c should be ‘barrel rolling round behind the formation’, just as impressive, especially with smoke.
If anything goes wrong, or loss of SA upside down, then there’s no threat of a midair.

Saw another video yesterday which briefly shows the damaged Yak overturning on the ground with some force, not far from the other aircraft's pyre. I gather the pilot extracted himself... very lucky guy. Hope he is recovering well.

Looking at the videos, I'd suspect either G related black out or a medical episode, it doesn't seem like a misjudgement during a roll, but something actually going awry during the initial pull up to the left?
