Default worst airshow crash EVER

Just heard about this via the BBC.

http://www.cnn.com/2002/WORLD/europe...how/index.html

78 dead, 100+ wounded after an Su-27 performing an aerobatic routine at an airshow in Ukraine stalled and dove into a crowd of spectators.

actually, he did not stall and dive into the crowd...he attempted to pull out too low, the crew ejected, a wingtip hit the ground, and it cartwheeled flames and wreckage into the crowd line..

A terrible tragedy....
