From what I saw or have subsequently pieced together from the videos, the Hunter ran in along the crowd line from SW to NE at perhaps 200' into a pull up to the right, a derry turn into a long descending left hand turn over the Adur valley back towards the runway, probably a little further to the west than in the graphic. Then a pull up in to the 1/4 clover leaf that led to the accident.
