I saw that collision was at the IAT at Fairford in the UK in 1988 if memory serves me correctly.

The collision occurred at only about 500ft at fairly slow speed, but remarkably, only one aircraft crashed and both pilots survived! It shows, if nothing else, the exceptional performance of Russian ejection seats at low level!

The B-1 painting is superb, but I doubt any responsible a/c would take his 'Bone' to 25ft above a lake with the wings fully swept (>500kts)! Looks great anyway!
