Thousands of visitors gathered to the Chatsworth estate at the weekend for its annual Country Show. The Red Arrows were the biggest attraction at this year’s event - making their first public aerobatic display since the death of team-mate Jon Egging.
A Hawk aircraft from the Royal Air Force's Red Arrows aerobatic display team crashed while performing a routine in the southern UK.
The pilot of the crashed plane, Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging from Rutland, was killed when his Hawk T1 aircraft - Red 4 - crashed about 1km south east of Bournemouth Airport.
According to reports came later on; Jon Egging couldn’t eject from the crashing aircraft in time because he wanted to try to keep the plane away from populated areas. He succeeded, but sadly was killed in the crash.
