It isn't a good idea to debate the cause of an air accident. Show some respect for the family of the deceased, and allow the authorities to do their work.

It is always sad when an incident like this happens. Condolences to all those affected by this tragedy, regardless of the cause.

May the pilot rest in peace, and my condolences to all those left behind.

I don't see how talking about it in a civilized manner is in any way disrespectful. Of course, to each his own I guess.

I think it's often viewed that way because the discussion brings a certain amount of morbid enjoyment for hobbyists, who get to view the (often misunderstood) complexities of a fatal accident as interesting trivia or a chance to show off what they know.

I don't think that's the intent, but it is the perception.

One of the latest shots of Gabriele, taken at Istrana AB about one month ago, before the Jesolo Air Show.
Rest in peace and blue skies

That's 4 in 6 weeks after only 2 in 14 years.

I feel so bad they didn't managed to eject. I wondered then if the ejection seats are even able to compensate for falling down. Shouldn't ejection seats be given more fuel to go off longer in such circumstances, in case of water, you'd be better off just neutralizing the fall and slowing the fall or even hover to the water, no need to go all the way up for parachute deployment (well the parachute would still open anyway no matter how low)
