Really sad day indeed. My condolences to the pilot's family and the rest of the team.

I'm a big fan of the Red Arrows and feel they are fantastic ambassadors for the UK and UK aviation. I hope they are given the privacy to come to terms with this tragedy.

Was hoping for good news. Gutted. Only watched them a few weeks ago. My thoughts go to The Team and family for this terrible loss.

RIP - my thoughts and prayers are with loved ones.

I think that it would now be appropriate, repectful and human for this thread to be purely for condolences; speaking as someone who has lost friends to this sort of thing before, I know that would be appreciated.

I see we now have confirmation of what we all feared. How bloody awful, and what a truly tragic loss of a very talented bloke. Blue skies Jon, you were one of the very best.

Like many I was hoping for the best.
Very sad. Gods speed.
