It looks like he rolled out into the slipstream / wake turbulence of his mate - and thereby lost the altitude / momentum

Lucky bugger though - a feet feet lower and you could have scraped him out of the meadow...

I agree HJK414 - he allowed himself to sink at the end of the rolling maneuver. Once he hit the wake of the guy in front, he was already running out of options - fortunately he rolled wings level just in time to get some lift faeries under his wings.... =D>

That’s what I would bet on.

Some years back I ended up in the wake of a Tiger Moth while flying a C140 and the nose was forced downwards for what felt like a few seconds. I chose not to fight it but had the luxury of a bit of altitude to spare.

I wonder if they formed up again after that ... or maybe just straight and level two miles followed by 5 degree bank positioning turns for a return to land ? Haha 😂!! One lucky son of a gun !!!

I didn't see the original video, only the one posted here. Is that not the Brazilian Air Force team?
