This Russian MiG-29 plummets towards the the ground like a flaming comet trailing smoke and burning fuel having collided with her sister 526 during their air display at the 1993 International Air Tattoo.

The funny thing is that both pilots ejected safely, and the only injury was when the pilot of the aircraft that was hit punched the other and broke his nose.

Superb picture, I was there that day aged 10 and I remember my dad covering my eyes when it happened. Horrible moment as it initially seemed that the other Mig's wing had sliced the cockpit in half, and that the wreckage was heading towards the crowd. Several people airside were injured by falling wreckage, but miraculously noone was killed.

Excellent catch of an incredibly (thankfully) rare event.
