Saw the video footage too....shocking!
I don't hold out too much hope for the pilot unfortunately, but you never know.

indeed leslie R.I.P to those that perished. was the first time I had gone to this show, even though its only about 5 miles from me. mainly went to see the final flight of the AVRO VULCAN over the sussex skies. could not make the air tattoo at fairford earlier this year. while thet dealt with the aftermath of the accident, they held the VULCAN out at sea. after a while they let the Vulcan do a 'fly past' as a tribute. and that was it. all further flying was suspended. and now tomorrows show has been cancelled!

the main EXIT road out of the airport was severely damaged and blocked by debris, damaged vehicles and masses of emergency vehicles! trapping thousands of vehicles inside. luckily I went by train and got shuttle bus to airport.

While aerobatics (I mean aerobatics close to the ground) using current and ex-military jet aircraft is very impressive and brings the crowds in, I could never understand why they are allowed near large population areas. To me the risk is just too great.

Some pictures have appeared that show how close the pilot came to saving the situation.

OMG. my wife showed me this FACEBOOK POST!! from lewis gary macdonald!! regarding the crash. I quote!

I was there today as an early birthday present. now its ruined and my dad spent all that money for four people for NOTHING!! (tickets were £18 gbp in advance £22 on the day).

I know its sounds callous, RAFA SHOREHAM AIRSHOW, but I'd like to get the money he spent BACK in to his account. we did not get a full days worth out of this tragedy, which means money he badly needs has GONE TO WASTE!!!!!!


some people are just f&&&ing UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!! needless to say he is getting abusive replies!!

Must be trolling. I can't believe someone could be that insensitive...but then again, a couple of years back our secretary complained about an accident on the highway from her house making her late. She knew about the fatalities, but still, they were inconsiderate and stupid for having that accident. The individual who posted that FB message is earning those replies.

actually chris one of those people was on the local RADIO this morning!! luckily it passed right in front of him and a few others and they just legged it!! he said the heat was incredible and the smell afterwards was awful. he said there were about 20 people on either side of the carriageways at the time. normally there up to FIVE TIMES that number!!

I did not see the impact as it went behind trees and bushes. then I saw a 100-150 metre fireball erupt from left to right. we thought he had crashed into trees and bushes at the end of airport. not till they announced he had hit the road junction out of airport that it started to sink in that several vehicles had also been hit.

Intersting as i have watched a few different videos and cant say i have noticed said puff of of smoke... i would question whether it was something else rather than coming from the actual aircraft... still over a week on it is crazy to watch the footage or photos...
