P-51 and A-1 collide... low altitude bailout

7 posts in this topic

As the pilot bails out, he is hit by the aircraft and still manages to deploy his chute under 200 feet.

Well, this could have gone much worse. Good to hear that no one got seriously injured. Thx for sharing.

The P-51 didn't really take any visual damage but I guess the elevators and the rudder in the back got disabled after the collision.


Btw, the mentioned planes at Duxford get maintained by the Fighter Collection, the same group that made the original A-10c Warthog training simulator for the US Air National Guard which got released to the public as DCS: A-10c Warthog
