He did eject, I am yet to hear if he is okay. He is the son of an airline pilot.

Saw them perform over Newcastle just a fortnight ago, great show.

Really hope the pilot is okay but the lack of confirmation from the media is not a good sign.

I really fear for the pilot. There was no ejection that I could see in that video.

Not a good sign that the eye-witness failed to see any sign of a parachute seconds after the plane hit the ground. Hopefully the pilot somehow got out OK.

Eye-witnesses suggest the pilot stayed with the plane to steer it away from nearby houses.

Hopefully the MoD will make arrangements for the public to show their support and appreciation for what the team does and how much joy they bring to us 'ordinary' people

What a sad news!

RIP Red Arrows pilot. You will be missed by many.

        


An RAF Red Arrows pilot died when his plane crashed following a display at the Bournemouth Air Festival in Dorset.
Flt Lt Jon Egging, 33, from Rutland, was killed when his Hawk T1 aircraft - Red 4 - crashed about 1km south east of Bournemouth Airport at 13:50 BST.

 



There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

This is such a sad day. Thoughts are with Lieutenant Jon Egging and his family. I only saw the Reds performing 2 weeks ago in BLK. They're always spectacular and provide an excellent family outing and maintain professionalism whenever you see them.
