Video: Red Bull Planes Collide Midair

The Red Bull Flying Bulls aerobatic team was performing at the Aero India airshow in Bengaluru on Thursday when two of the airplanes collided midair, sending both into emergency descents that ended with successful landings.

Both pilots escaped the accident uninjured, but one aircraft suffered significant wing damage.

Local reports say the collision between the two Zlín 50LX airplanes occurred during a wing-over maneuver. The accident took place around 3:10 p.m. during the second performance of the airshow, which is billed as one of Asia's largest, with spectator video capturing the harrowing event.

The Flying Bulls team is based in the Czech Republic and dates back to the early 1960s. The team was recently comprised of just four pilots until it added two more in the form of what's known as the "Flying Duo."
