The incident happened only a few hundred meters from the beach.
An Italian pilot wanted to perform several flight maneuvers on Sunday at a flight show in front of Italy, but then the jet crashed into the water. There are no survivors.
Captain Gabriele Orlandi (36) enjoyed flying for his life – this time, according to the Italian newspaper “La Stampa”, in the Frecce Tricolori aerobatics squadron.
On the weekend, a flight show over the port city of Terracina (90 kilometres south of Rome) was on the agenda. Thousands had come to see the risky flight maneuvers.
According to the page “The Aviationist” he started with his “Eurofighter F-2000A Typhoon” from Grosseto and showed his skills over the harbor city before the crash happened.
