Three injured and one dead was the result of a collision between two aircrafts (OV10 Bronco) during training at Venezuelan Air Force base located in Aragua state, north Venezuela, on Thursday at around 11:30 a.m.

Apparently, three members of the crew were able to eject themselves from the planes, but another one did not make it and died on fire. His remains are located inside what was left of the plane.

The injured were taken to a nearby hospital in Maracay, capital of Aragua state.

The accident occurred during a training session in preparation for an aviation parade to take place within a few days to celebrate Aviation Day.
