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.

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.

I assume the Red Arrows will now be grounded for an indefinite period, at least the rest of the season, but I hope that a missing man formation would be appropriate at some time in the future.

Once again RIP Flt. Lt. Egging and long live the Red Arrows.

Very sad news yesterday. 

Only saw the Red's display once this year, at Kemble, and enjoyed it immensely.

On a Friday afternoon only a few weeks ago, they flew over my house at low level in their 5 and 4 ship units while transitting from Fairford to a display at Shawbury. I'd had a really tough week at work, with the Friday being especially difficult, so had just gone out to the garden to 'switch off' for a bit. The unexpected fly-by really cheered me up and made my day - these people have a positive effect whenever and wherever they go, not just during their displays. That's a rare gift these days and one to treasure.

Best regards,

Jim

Red Arrows grounded after pilot Jon Egging killed

Amateur footage shows one of the Red Arrows flying at a lower height
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14603644

Witnesses described seeing his plane hit the ground in a field by the River Stour near the village of Throop.
Books of condolence are to be opened in Bournemouth later for public tributes.
Dorset Police said Flt Lt Egging, known as 'Eggman', was thrown from the aircraft and was pronounced dead at the scene.

RE: Red Arrows Crash!

Sun Aug 21, 2011 1:00 pm

After watching the video I was curious if the Reds wear a g-suit. This is what I found on the Reds website:



How much ‘g’ do the Team pull during a display?
Gravity is measured in terms of the amount of acceleration that the force gives to an object on the earth. The Red Arrows’ main section uses up to 5 times the force of gravity (5’g’) in their manoeuvres but up to 7’g’ in the Vixen Break. The Synchro Pair use 7g quite frequently and can go up to 8’g’, the aircraft limit, if needed. At 8’g’ everything weighs 8 times its normal weight, arms, legs, bags under the eyes, and so on. Cameramen have to remember that the weight of their equipment increases with increasing ‘g’ and it can be difficult to keep the camera up to eye level. The heart sinks and blood tends to pool towards the legs and away from the brain. If insufficient blood reaches the eyes then the pilots gradually lose vision and this is known as 'blacking out'.

Why do the pilots wear anti-g suits?
The anti-‘g’ suit is an elasticised garment which fits tightly over the lower abdomen and legs and fastens with laces and zips. Attached to the suit is a hose-pipe which feeds pressurised air into a large number of tubes within the suit. When an aircraft pulls 'g', the pilot's blood is forced downwards away from the heart and towards the feet so starving the brain. All pilots learn how to control this by tensing the stomach muscles but it is a physically tiring procedure. If the pilot relaxed his stomach muscles under high ‘g’ conditions, all his blood would rapidly rush away from his brain and he would black-out. When the pilot is wearing an anti-g suit, pressurised air proportional to the g force rushes into the tubes and compresses the pilot’s abdomen and legs, thus saving the pilot considerable physical effort. Without the help of an anti-‘g’ suit the pilots would rapidly get tired and might even black out

Yesterday when I read the news I changed mood and still now I am sad. Too much passionated with aerobatics team and too much bound with them for familiar reasons.

My deepest thoughts for this brave man, his family and all the RA Team.

I saw the video footage and apparently it is unbelievable to see the jet crashing such a way during the latest separation manouver of a display. Since the beginning of the right bank the plane started its descend without any variation on its course.

What do you think? As written by ZANL188 couldnt be caused by a temporary blackout of the pilot? Does RA team use anti-g suite?

Kind regards
Simone

It never ceases to irritate me when this claim is made early on before the pilot's actions are known. It happens after more or less any fatal crash within half a mile of a house, as if piling credit on the pilot without facts will somehow help matters. If the investigation finds evidence that the pilot did steer clear of people and buildings then he should rightly be hailed as a hero, but until then labeling every dead pilot such belittles the sacrifice of those who really did attempt to save others at the expense or endangerment of their lives.

That said, I hope Red 4 is busy showing the angels how its done. RIP Flt. Lt. Egging, he IS a hero who served on combat operations before inspiring countless thousands at airshows during his short time with the Reds.

In a case such as this it's rather difficult to have any idea what the pilot was thinking especially early on. Though I'm sure it's good for ratings when the reporters come up with this fiction as well as helping to fill airtime.

I.E. We don't know the actions of the pilot. Currently, we can't say that he steered away from homes because we don't know.

At the moment, he's a hero for his miliatary service in Afghanistan; let us learn (and then discuss) the facts rather than speculating about what may well be rubbish.

I think that, or "presumption" is a better choice of words. To me, "fiction" means "known to be false", whereas to others here, it seems to mean "could be true or false".

Usually the statement is conditionalized as in:

Quoting keegd76 (Reply 11):
Eye-witnesses suggest the pilot stayed with the plane to steer it away from nearby houses.

because no one knows for sure this close to the time of the incident.

As someone who has talked to many people involved in GA accidents, I can tell you they are all pretty much focused on saving themselves and their aircraft. As above we don't know what happened in this case, but in my experience any pilot in trouble would head towards the field rather than the village primarily because the field offers the best chance of walking away from the accident. The fact that it also avoids endangering others is true too, but the village is never going to be a good choice of a place to land under any circumstance, right?

So, it's my belief that pilots in trouble steer away from houses mostly due to survival instinct and training (fields look more like airports than villages do), but it doesn't bother me one bit if some people presume it's because they are primarily concerned about endangering others.

As above, Ft. Lt. Egging is a hero for his service to his country in Afghanistan, as well as his service on the Red Arrow team. I'm sure a lot of you feel it's a fun job, and I'm sure to a good degree it is, but it's also a lot of hard work as well as physical and emotional stress, and his country should be proud of such an excellent man, and should mourn his loss.

Exactly! Spot on posts by both of you. That has been a thorn in my side as well, especially when it was an accident in which the pilot definitely had no control over the aircraft yet the same claim is made. These pilots are brave and deserve to be respected but piling on unfounded accolades does nothing to honor them. Its just journalistic romantic hyperbole.

I am sad for the loss of a Red Arrow pilot, they are a superb team.

I am sad for the loss of a Red Arrow pilot, they are a superb team.

Agree 100%.
Inspiration, move me brightly! Light the song with sense and color.
Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.
Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last.
Some rise, some fall, some climb, to get to Terrapin!

   Good post, man.

RIP to a flier who served his country with valor, and a very big thumbs up to his gracious and poised wife.
