June 22, in a delta formation of 6 Pilatus, two of them touched wings and crashed, killing 4 pilots.

Is it necessary to make formation flights with Pilatus, with 2 pilots in each craft???

Any more information on this? Also, where is CBB?

I would not think it is necessary to have 2 pilots in each plane, however I don't think it makes the flights any more dangerous themselves.

CBB = Cochabamba/Bolivia

Infos: www.cnnenespanol.com, www.lostiempos.com, www.opinion.com.bo, unfortunatelly (if you cannot read Spanish) all in Spanish.

Good friend of mine died in the accident...

The aircraft clipped their wings and crashed on right beside the runway.

Sorry to hear about your friend. I don't speak spanish, but I was able to read the article (some cuban friends at work are slowly teaching me a third language). Seems that they were flying PC-7s. Perhaps the second seats on these planes were being used as a reward, for people to fly along with the team? Did every aircraft have 2 people aboard?

As far as I have heard, yes, every PC7 was with 2 persons on board, which I see as nonsense because it is risky flying anyways, so why risk two persons on a craft that can easily be flown by one only.
