An Aermacchi MB-339 jet had just taken off in formation to head to Vercelli, where it should have perform an aerial exhibition. For reasons yet to be ascertained the aircraft piloted by Major Oscar Del Do' lost altitude and crashed into the ground.
The pilot successfully ejected before impact. It is not possible at this time to confirm the causes of the accident.

One of the hypotheses under consideration, given the dynamics of the event, is a bird strike during take-off. The ensuing crash involved a car near the perimeter of the airfield and a post-crash fire ensued. Of the occupants of the car, a child was killed and three others were injured.
