I have to give the BBC a pat on the back for that report for not having any idle speculation, or revealling anything they probably did know, until the MOD had officially announced that Flt Lt Egging had been killed.
Both the Beeb and Sky covered this tragedy pretty professionally IMO. The members of the public who were first on the scene no doubt divulged more information than they saw fit to broadcast. Credit where credit is due.
With the above in mind, would someone with influence mind pointing out to the BBC (perhaps again) that this is not the first Red Arrows fatality since the 1970s, as they suggested on BBC Breakfast this morning. Flt Lt Neil MacLachlan was sadly killed in a display practice in January 1988.
