Glad that there were no victims. Whenever one of these warbirds have an accidents it is very painful, almost as it I own them.

Cut inside the p51 lost sight due to angle of bank should have maintained visual on the P51 during the break. Very lucky that he got out.

Completely the Skyraider's fault. Makes me mad to see this accident that didn't have to happen.

Did he lose elevator authority? I saw the skyraider lose the wing, then a few seconds layer the 51 pilot jettison the canopy, then the 51 went into a nose low attitude. I'm surprised that the skyraider is the one that didn't go down.
