Accident at Bournemouth Airshow
« on: September 04, 2021, 06:28:55 PM »
What appears to be one of Aerosuperbatics Boeing Stearman`s has crashed at the Bournemouth Airshow.

The aircraft had broken off from the display after declaring a problem, and shortly after crashed into the sea.

Thankfully both the pilot and wingwalker are safe, and were being treated for minor injuries.

I see it was one of their white aircraft that is usually used for their day to day paid wingwalker flights, they don't use them in displays often and usually have the Orange Stearmans.
