The famous crash seen from the north side of the base, from the top of a 'photo bus'. The most scaring event I have ever seen during an airshow. While I took this photo the other doomed MiG flew over my head.

Wow, this is what i call timing. I've also seen a plane crash during an airshow, the same year infact, but don't remember much other than that it was scary.

Those parked aircraft belong to the Spanish Air Force. They are the "Patrulla Aguila", spanish aerobatical team. I presume they were there to perform during the airshow.
