A PILOT was killed when his plane started tumbling to the ground before bursting into a fireball.
Terrifying footage shows the small aircraft soaring over spectators at an airshow.
It goes vertical into the air before heading back to the ground in an attempt to pull off an acrobatic manoeuvre.
But as it starts corkscrewing towards the ground the pilot appears to lose control and it crashes into the ground behind a line of trees.
Gasps are heard from the camerawoman as she sees it disappear.
Moments later, a huge pume of black smoke is sent into the air from the site of the crash.
The shocking incident took place at an airshow in Tambov, Russia on Friday (July 7).
According to Ruptly, the cause of the accident was a piloting error.
