    I think they were trying to be bold pilots rather then old pilots

    Yep, RAAF Beauforts that were involved in making a public relations film on torpedo bombers. After they had made their torpedo runs, they were to make a high speed low pass and then perform a Prince of Wales manoeuvre. Obviously the right hand plane got too close to the lead aircraft, striking his tail plane resulting in the crash.
    All eight crew men were killed.
