Very dramatic images!

For what I understand it was not one of the aerobatic team.

It was apparently an adversary for an F/A-18 on a training flight

It does, but I think the point is that it may have been a team painted aircraft but it was not necessarily flown on a team sortie or by a team pilot. One of the references says it was (effectively) an 'aggressor' sortie.

Edit: Timing!

​​ good one
My understanding is that it was indeed a training flight unrelated to the aerobatic patrol.

The aircraft of the swiss military aerobatic team have a day job to display enemy aircraft for training purposes. This was when the red colored aerobatic team aircraft crashed.

The a/c looks remarkably intact! Did it ski-doo down the mountainside??

Those images could be screen grabs from a video.

They are indeed images from the video, and it did have a relatively soft landing, then slid down the mountain.

What is the orange pod on the belly? Tow target pod?

Agree with the remarkably soft landing/slide.

I couldn't find a video as such but found the link below to the closest thing.

Looks like it may be images from a DSLR on high frame rate.
