The social media users have stated that precautions should have been taken and asked that why the planes were flying in such close proximity.
Play stupid games, win stupid prices. Hope they all made it safely down to earth. Next time keep plenty of distance.

I once went skydiving. The next time that plane took off it crashed and killed all 6 people on board. Including 3 I’d jumped with. They were too low for chutes to deploy. Thankfully these folks had sufficient altitude.
