Narrative:
The plane crashed during an airshow. The pilot was injured, and the mechanic was killed. The pilot later died in hospital from the injuries sustained in the crash.

PROBABLE CAUSES:
Late application of flight controls or height and speed recovery decision to avoid obstacles.
The actions applied to the flight controls or controls of the aircraft in its reaction time due to the response delay of the aerodynamic forces, were not able to avoid the impact with the trees, the angle of entry into the terrain and the low height of maneuver in conjunction with flight speed made it impossible to recover flight during the maneuver or attitude of the aircraft.
