2 fighter jets clip wings during Fort Lauderdale Air Show in Florida

Two fighter jets briefly touched wings during the Fort Lauderdale Air Show in Florida over the weekend in an incident that could have been much worse.

A spectator recorded video of the frightening moment when two jets in the Polaris Ghost Squadron clipped wings while performing an aerial stunt for the crowd.

The two jets were getting into formation with two other jets when the incident occurred. When the wings of the two jets touched, the aircraft fell out of formation before the pilots quickly regained control.

The incident prompted the air show to declare an emergency as a precaution. The air show said in a statement that both jets landed safely, and the pilots were unharmed, FOX13 Tampa reported.
