Question I have is why were they so close to begin w.? What were they
trying to accomplish? Seen some interviews w. all of them on one of the
morning shows, and nothing was mentioned about getting the planes so close
together to start with.

My question exactly - why were they flying that close together to start with. I wouldn't think jumpers would want to jump out with another plane that close. Parachute could get tangled up in the other plane, etc. I would think they would want at least 1/4 to 1/2 mile separation. I know when I was doing a lot of full-scale flying, a collision with another plane scared me the worst. Engine failure, etc is a big deal but not as bad as a collision.

When you are building multi-person formations (more than one plane can hold), it is to some advantage to dump everyone out as close together as you can get. You spend less time chasing each other to start building, and have more time to make several formations before it's time to clear the air and get that chute out. In this case it definitely looked like there may have been a blind spot where the bottom pilot couldn't see the plane above him? Something went wrong for sure, but there were a thousand things that went right that day!

There, their and they're. It's really that simple.

They never mentioned where the burning wreckage ended up, assume it missed
everything and everybody, thank goodness!
