Apologies if this is in the wrong section, please move it if it is.
There's no good news article to link to but this is roughly what happened:
At Duxford's (EGSU) Flying Legends show this afternoon (10th july), an A-1 Skyraider and a P-51 Mustang collided mid-air. The collision caused the tail section of the Mustang to seperate from the aircraft. The pilot ejected and the parachute was effective; he has been taken to hospital for checks but reports claim he walked away from the accident. The airframe plunged into a field from around 300' and I would assume it has been lost but no confirmation of it's condition. The Skyraider lost part of its wing but managed to land safely; as of 1900L, the aircraft was still on runway 24R/06L (the grass runway).
