Working link to the first article: https://ceskobudejovicky.denik.cz/nehod ... 10620.html . Very sad, obviously, with one fatality and one seriously wounded (plus the loss of a warbird).

The T-28 was on the way home from the Antidotum Airshow Leszno and, according to the article, in the company of three other aircraft. The Bulls' B-25, P-38 and P-51 were in the Leszno programme (https://antidotum.lotniskoleszno.pl/#program) as well and ADSB Exchange indeed shows the B-25 orbiting over the crash site before continuing to Salzburg. :cry:

It seems that, according to the aviation-safety site, the other occupant also died as it now shows 2 fatalities... :-(

Reverted? I see fatalities 1 / occupants 2. Bad enough as it is, of course.

Yes, apparently reverted as this is different as what was stated this morning: as per aviation-safety.net there have been 2 updates on the fatalities this morning.

Der bei dem Unfall schwer verletzte Mitflieger befindet sich weiterhin in einem Krankenhaus in der tschechischen Hauptstadt Prag.
Sein Zustand soll kritisch sein.
