The BBC's graphic is completely wrong. he flew in from the south having transited from the east over the sea, I know because I was there and he flew right over my position on the beach under the display axis so I saw the whole sequence. He pulled up into what I thought would be a loop but then rolled 90 degrees to stb and pulled over into an attempted quarter clover at the top of the climb it appeared to just fall over the top. To me it was clear he would not recover it from the resulting near vertical dive away from the manoeuvre. Just looked wrong.
Still the BBC get it wrong last night showing the aircraft at other displays doing a 'victory roll' when it was clearly doing a slowish four point hesitation roll! Can't they get any facts right.
