Sknyliv disaster - Su-27 crashes into crowd during an airshow

What happens in this video ?

Sknyliv airshow disaster - 27 July 2002 - Lviv, Ukraine – It is the world's worst airshow disaster: An Ukrainian Air Force Sukhoi Su-27 crashed into the crowd during aerobatics presentation killing 84 people and injuring 100. Investigators suspect pilot errors, engine failure or plane overfueling (causing the plane to become heavier and less agile) as the cause of the crash. Both pilots ejected and suffered minor injuries.

You only get to eject once you have made sure your plane is not going to plow into the crowd as such. These reckless pilots should have died. And really, surviving and knowing what you did really seems a lot worse than getting killed...

Another video shows the pilot, after ejecting, still in his parachute harness, standing amongst the carnage lighting up and having a cig. Somebody runs past him and pats him on the shoulder almost as if to say, 'well done glad, you're alright'

So sad that people had to loose there lifes. Fantastic photography. I wish it never happened. The pilot at lease tried to get back on the airstrip and out of harms way. I give them credit, but also say stupidity for there improper check list of fuel and such.

Low level passes, low level rolls and loops, so many of these crashes at air shows seem to me to happen when pilots are "showing off" their prowess and skills. People die when this happens.

John, the pilots are the ones who were at the controls, so they must be blamed. And no one can recover from a loss of altitude at low speed flying close to the ground. That's not a lightweight extra300, that's a bloody heavy fighter jet.

Investigators suspect pilot error? Apparently since this is the former Soviet Union the pilots must have been shot so investigators could not come up with a better answer.
