Anyone who has witnessed a T28 fly knows that although they are not very fast but the energy in a catastrophic situation is absolutely massive. What a tragedy , so sad.

Just overdid it, sad.

According to the video comments.
It is Interesting to note the pilot had two previous accidents in last 4 years 2015 and 2017

These hot blooded Spaniards tend to get carried away when the flags are flying and the band is playing and the crowd is in festive mood. Not a PC statement, but a fact of life.

Yes Hatman but not flown at those speeds when doing a display in a tight box.

The pilot said I can cut it fine, watch this, Darwin said I'm watching but it's gonna end in tears...

My comment was rather facetious, people lost their lives... I get that. How often have we not seen this movie before?

I wonder if any planning or pre-flight briefings took place at all, it seems unlikely unless that maneuver was unscripted. Are there not regulations for carrying a passenger in a display? This was not marginal error, killing one innocent lucky not to have killed hundreds, I argued that simple aerial display miscalculations resulting in tragedy should not be prosecuted criminally but if anything qualifies for criminal negligence this does. :x :x
