Very sad if it is true, we saw the Red Arrows in Blackpool last week and they were amazing!

Yes, they are amazing. You just stand there, mouth wide open, watching!
I hope the pilot managed to eject safely.

Shaun Spencer-Perkins saw the crash and said he heard "a whoosh sound, looked
around and saw a Red Arrow flying below the tree line".

"It was flying incredibly fast, then it hit one side of the embankment of the
river," he told Sky News.

"I saw part of the plane on our side of the embankment, strewn over a
field.

"The rest was on the opposite side of the river.

"The crash site was quite large and there was a smell of aviation fuel."

Laura Goodwin also saw the crash, and said that immediately afterwards, she
saw a police helicopter and a coastguard helicopter in the air.

She had been watching the display, and said she saw the red arrows coming in
to land.

"One went one way, one went the other and then did not come back up," she
told Sky News.

"Within seconds you could tell something was not right as there were
ambulances there."

Bournemouth Airport said it was closed for a short time but was now operating
normally.



Eyewitness on Red Arrow crash










A statement said: "Passengers due to fly out of the airport this afternoon
and evening are asked to check in as normal."

The aerobatic team was officially formed in 1965 and has taken part in over
4,000 displays in 53 countries, according to the official website.

A timetable said they were due to be carrying out a display at the Air
Festival at 1pm before a flypast in Drimpton - a village in West Dorset.

I've just read today, in a local freebie newspaper, that Jon Egging was from a little town about 7 miles from where I live and that he went to a school that I worked at for a while. Somehow, it all seemed more real. There's a photo of him on the front of the newspaper, visiting the local Air Cadets a few weeks ago.
