    Default Red Arrows incident

    "The tip of one plane touched the tail of another during a flight over their base at RAF Scampton near Lincoln.

    Seven aircraft were flying at the time, and an investigation has concluded that one of the pilots carried out an incorrect manoeuvre. No-one was injured and the collision was described as "a minor incident" by a spokeswoman for the display team."

    Could of been much worse.

    Good thing it didn't turn out as bad as it could have. The Thunderbirds had the missile rail incident a couple years back in Chicago. Still takes a lot of skill for stuff like this not to happen more often.

    glad to see no injuries. Could have been terrible with 7 aircraft flying...
