Sadly a big aeroplane being taken too close to its limits.

Only needs the slightest hiccup and down you go. There is some excellent footage of the previous year's display practice, that's incredibly close to the limits too.

The expression 'an accident waiting to happen' springs to mind . . . again.

Just sorry for the families of those associated with this latest accident.
