Military Planes Collide at Malaysia Airshow

Pilots safely eject from Indonesian trainers.

Dramatic video captured the collision of a pair of Indonesian military trainers as the pilots practiced their routine for an airshow in Malaysia on Sunday.

The pilots of both airplanes safely ejected after clipping each other during a head-on pass that led to the fiery crashes of the KT-1B turboprops, single-engine training airplanes built by Korea Aerospace Industries.

Debris was scattered over a wide area and two houses caught on fire. The pilots were taken to a local hospital for observation and released. Nobody on the ground was injured.

Aerial displays for LIMA '15, Malaysia's major aerospace show which opens today, were halted after the crash.
