Narrative:
Mid-air collision during a formation training flight involving four Jaguar aircraft. Both Jaguars involved in the collision (XX749 and XX755) crashed. One pilot (Flt Lt N Brown in XX749) was killed the other (in XX755) ejected safely.

Fatality in XX749 attributed to the canopy failing to jettison because the firing link was not connected, so the seat passed through the canopy fatally injuring the pilot
