Hung Start,

I heard that M.Hanna crashed in Spain, his ME109 (I think) pplummeted due to the wake of a jet that took off minutes earlier. I Also heard that R.Hanna has moved to New Zealand.

If anyone knows otherwise please say so!!

So!!

The report into Marks accident still hasn't been published. But from the pictures I saw he was on fire before he hit the ground. As for the exact reason, well we'll just have to wait for the report

Incidentally this does seem to be taking an inordinate amount of time.

Ray was at Duxford for the spring airshow, so perhaps he's migratory.

embarassed to admit i had forgotten the show was on, but heard about the first crash while on a trip, and then the second on my return.
i'm sure lots of us have friends who have been lucky to 'walk away from it', my sympathies are with those of you who have any association with the guys who weren't so lucky

I have long been an avid admirer of everyone who takes part in display flying - I had the very great pleasure of knowing Sir Kenneth Hayr and GBW but I have known many more! From someone who dreamt to have been able to be a display pilot I thank them for the many years of enjoyment that they have provided not only to me but to the many thousands of people who attend the airshows!

For those of you who still fly to please the crowds, defend the realm and fly us around the world - THANK YOU!

RIP Guy and Sir Ken - you will be sadly missed!

On behalf of Ray Hanna and the Old Flying Machine Co.:

OFMC is still waiting for the report on Mark's accident.

OFMC has been in constant contact with the Spanish authorities and expects their report later this year. In the interim, it may be assumed that Mark and the 109 Buchon were the victims of wake turbulence at less than 100 feet on the final approach to land.
