An Italian Air Force has crashed into the sea killing the pilot during an airshow at Terracina,south of Rome. https://theaviationist.com/2017/09/24/i ... est-pilot/
The pilot made no attempt to eject,and appears to have misjudged the recovery height required to complete a loop manoeuvre.
In the UK the CAA that control airshows,there has been a big push to get airshows at seaside venues as they claim it is safer.
Most display pilots would tend to disagree,as it is very difficult to gauge height above water,and there are few reference points.
Doubtless the debate will rage on - however yet another pilot and aircraft have been lost performing what should be a fairly routine manoeuvre.
