Aftermath of Swiss mid-air plane crash which saw one pilot killed but another parachute to safety

 Tragedy: The 50-year-old pilot was inside his plane when it crashed into a barn in Dittingen in  Switzerland

A pilot died and another parachuted to safety when two planes collided at an airshow in northern Switzerland.

The two aircraft touched in mid-air just before crashing in the hillside village of Dittingen near Basel at about 11.15am local time today.

The automatic rescue system of the first plane did not activate and the 50-year-old pilot, whose identity has not been revealed, was inside the aircraft as it crashed into a barn in the centre of Dittingen. Nobody else was hurt in the crash.
