Red Arrow Crashes

Red Arrow crashes during Bournemouth Air Festival
Quote
They had earlier taken part in a display over the seafront. No details are known about possible casualties.

Only last weekend they were flying over Manston. Visibility was poor and they seemed to be flying extremely low, even for the Red Arrows. Magnificent displays. We saw them a number of times from our garden over three or four days as well as at Manston Airport.
I've always been in awe of their courage and dedication - makes you proud to be British!

Sadly the pilot is reported to have died even though later reports say his condition is 'unknown'. Undecided
