    Human factor. It’s a pity for the pilot, but re-evaluating one’s own capabilities and bravado always lead to accidents and disasters.

      Absolutely agree! But ... in the "extreme" time, the level of training in the Turkish Air Force is very noticeable ... is weakening, especially after the massive layoffs of the flight personnel.
      here is the video, fresh. Minaret was not "demolished" request

    However, the word Turkey itself is not very pleasant to me, however:
    Onboard was the 60-year-old Murat Ozturk

    In his years, doing this - deserves respect, his death at the helm at the age of 60 when performing aerobatics is not so bad - perhaps pilots in love with the sky dream of it.

      But our network is no worse than pilots, General Kharchevsky is over 60 and he performs aerobatics on combat fighters.

    Rest in peace! Maybe he decided to leave "nicely" in the last seconds. Condolences to loved ones.

    Allah rehmet elesin. But at the age of 60 he did such a thing, a man with character was. Perhaps he dreamed of such a death.

    It is unclear why the title refers to the international air show, while the disaster occurred during the festive events on the annual Youth and Sports Day.
    60 years old for the pilot is considerable. The Turkish press suggested a heart attack, as the plane suddenly lost control when performing the last aerobatics.
