The event occurred Sunday, September 24, at the Terracina Air Show, which was quickly called off after Orlandi’s body was found, Business Insider Australia reported.

The pilot’s girlfriend and parents were in attendance to watch the performance, according to The Telegraph UK.

Just 11 days before the accident in Italy, a Royal Saudi Air Force Eurofighter crashed into a mountain during a combat mission against Houthi militants in Yemen’s al-Wade’a district, killing pilot Mahna al-Biz, The Aviationist reported.
