You'd have to be going some to put a 101 on it's side during a ground run. It's a pretty stable machine in that environment so would either have to be gross mishandling or mechanical failure.

I would suggest that the risk of mid-air collision in a well briefed close formation sortie is minimal. The fact that they were mixed types flown by civilian and military crews is irrelevant so long...

I'm not convinced the accident rate stats back-up the rose-tinted spectacle view Crab. There's plenty of evidence to show that a lot of aviators didn't 'get away with all that stuff' in the past.
