Witness say they saw a huge fireball when the aircrafts hit the ground after they spiralled out of control upon hitting each other, The Strait Times reports.
The crash occurred in a residential area outside the Yelahanka air base, in Banglore, southern India.
"One pilot died of fatal injuries and two other pilots ejected out of the two Hawk advanced jet trainers after they collided midair and crashed," an Indian Air Force statement read.
An official investigation into the incident has been launched.
The two jets had been scheduled to take part in a display by the Suran Kiran acrobatic display team on the first day of the Aero India show in Banglore on Wednesday.
