A pilot was reportedly killed in a midair collision between two small planes at an airshow in Dittingen in Switzerland on Sunday.

According to reports, the two planes collided while in formation and went into a spin. News website Watson reported that one pilot was killed after the small plane, an Ikarus C42, crashed into a barn.

The pilot of the other plane was able to eject on time and parachuted to safety.

Police and emergency services cordoned off the area, saying the situation was "under control", Watson reported.

The planes, Ikarus C42, belonged to the German aerobatics Grasshoppers team and was flown by three amateur pilots, according to Russia Today.The organisers called off the airshow following the "tragic" accident.

The midair collision in Switzerland comes merely a day after a terrible crash during the Shoreham Airshow in Britain on Saturday in which seven people were killed. The incident took place when a historic Hawker Hunter fighter jet crashed on the road at Shoreham in West Sussex during a loop manoeuvre, the Mirror reported.

The police said that the death toll in Shoreham plane crash could go up as they feared more bodies could be buried under the debris. The pilot of the aircraft--Andy Hill, a former RAF pilot--is reported to be in a critical condition.
