“An inspection commission was sent to the scene of the incident in order to determine the causes [of the collision],” it said.

A video uploaded to social media allegedly shows the moment of the incident. Several aircraft are seen flying close to each other, and, at one point, a wing of one of the planes bursts into bright flames.

The pilots were reportedly practicing for a July 20 airshow in the city of Rionegro. The T-27 is a version of the Embraer 312 Tucano turboprop light attack aircraft.
