Narrative:A Pilatus PC-7 of the "Swiss Air Force PC-7 Team" colldided with a camera cable during an airshow at the Ski World Championship 2017 in St. Moritz. The cable broke and the camara fell onto the piste, right into the final end of the ski run area.

|Location:||St. Moritz -
|Phase:|| Manoeuvring (airshow, firefighting, ag.ops.)|
That camera system hangs from 2 steel cables over a distance of about 1 kilometer, controlled with a third cable, and as the PC-7 team came over the mountain, visibility was bad (cloudy overcast) .
It was a near-disaster, such a camera weighs about 20 kilos, and could have killed people watching the ski race, which is now delayed after this incident.
Again, at air shows, high risk of collisions.
Police is investigating.
