BBC News - Red Arrow crashes during Bournemouth Air Festival.

Damn! Hopefully they are all ok :eek:

Their performance was impressive though, so thumbs up to them for that :ok:

The Bournemouth Enthusiast Group report it was near Throop Mill while preparing to land after the display.

1. Hope the pilot is OK
2. A little odd asking BBC to stop filming (Who asked, on what grounds?). In any case, all the private video cameras will still be filming, so why (apparently) blinker the Beeb?

BBC says: "BBC South Today producer Martin Webster said it was thought to be the RED 4 that crashed in an open area at Throop village, near the Castlepoint shopping centre."

Stuff 20th Aug 2011 14:44

From the lack of information that BBC News is getting from their man at the airport it seems that the incident happened out of sight of the cameras anyway.

Might not be the case.

HEATHROW DIRECTOR 20th Aug 2011 14:47

Latest rumour says it was Red4 and pilot banged out..

742-xx 20th Aug 2011 14:49

Sky news saying that dog walkers pulled the pilot from a river after he ejected.
Hope he/she is ok.

goldeneaglepilot 20th Aug 2011 14:52

If it was Red4 the pilot is normally Jon Egging, I sincerly hope he managed to eject to safety.

goldeneaglepilot 20th Aug 2011 15:04

BBC news have reported the aircraft as Red4 - the NORMAL pilots name is published on various websites, including the MOD website, it's not a secret. There is NOTHING to say that today he was the pilot of Red4...

cldrvr 20th Aug 2011 15:05

The guy's name is public knowledge and widely reported.

Flying Serpent 20th Aug 2011 15:05

BBC South Today producer Martin Webster said the plane was thought to have crashed in an open area at Throop village, near the Castlepoint shopping centre.
Shaun Spencer-Perkins, who witnessed the crash from Throop Mill, said: "I heard a rushing sound and I saw a plane about 15m above the ground racing across the fields.
"It impacted and bounced across the field, made it across the river.
"Members of the public jumped into the water to search for the cockpit.
"We waved down the helicopter, I took off my son's orange jacket and my wife's red jumper to get the attention of the helicopter."

Unbelievably the Daily Fail is even naming the pilot...:ugh: before official confirmation.

DarkSoldier 20th Aug 2011 15:05

lay off the man, this is information that any person would have freely been able to obtain from the Red Arrows own website, it's not like it's insider information which he is divulging

Gulf4uk 20th Aug 2011 15:11
