    It was not an "engine failure" accident, it was a stall-spin accident (yes, the engine had an issue and perhaps fully fail, but that doesn't cause the airplane to stall and spin).

    In that regards, it is similar to the Pilatus accident of the other thread.

    It doesn't stop to surprise me haw pilots of all experience levels still fall in this trap. These were pilots of the aerobatic demonstration team of a major western air force, not rookies.

    Looks to me like a compressor stall, maybe a bird strike, and loss of thrust during a very critical manuever. Both crew ejected in a nose-down attitude so there was very little altitude for the chute to have effect. According to wikipedia, one crew member was killed and the other sustained serious injuries. The fully-fueled aircraft came down in a residential neighborhood, so we're probably going to hear some outcry about the dangers of airshows in populated areas again.
