Treadders,

I was at the Yeovilton display with Lindsey Walton's Nord 1002 G-ATBG and had lunch with the pilot of the F-104 prior to his display. I flew my own slot shortly after the crash and vividly remember seeing the Starfighter pitch up uncontrollably during the turn onto final. A very unforgiving aircraft as the accident record showed. My own display was a rather subdued one after watching the tragedy unfold.

The Provost crash involved a friend though his name escapes me. I recall his first name as Peter. He had been involved with the Leisure Sport team displays. It was a piston Provost rather than a JP5 though.

Cheers,

Reaper 69
