After completing the low level display over the airfield, Red 4 flown by Flt Lt Egging failed to recover after a turn and crashed in a field near Bournemouth Airport. Unfortunately he did not make it.

I was working in event bronze control at the time and had a hectic afternoon dealing with the incident as well as the continuing airshow. The show is continuing today, although the Arrows and Hawks have been grounded.

Thoughts go out to both Flt Lt Egging's wife and the Arrows team.
