Shocking moment vintage fighter jet crashes down and explodes killing its two ... trends now
This is the terrifying moment a veteran fighter jet crashed beside a road and burst into flames, killing its two-man crew just seconds after an airshow fly-past.
The Soviet-era L-29 Delfin training jet had been performing at a display in Villa Canas, Santa Fe province, Argentina, on November 12 when it erupted into flames.
Spectator footage of the performance shows the 500mph jet making a very low-level pass over the runway as it buzzed thrilled audience members.
But seconds later, the jet banks to the right to perform a loop-the-loop stunt and apparently fails to pull up in time, unable to pull up in time to fix the mistake.
As the crowd gasps in horror, the jet hurtles down toward the ground and bursts into flames, smashing into a field yards from a busy road.
Police named the plane's co-pilot as Gaston Vanucci and his pilot as air acrobatics specialist Gaston Vanucci. Both perished before rescuers could reach the plane.
