Hoping all afternoon that this terrible news wouldn't come.  

My thoughts are with Jon family, friends and the Reds.

RIP Red 4

How awful, I'm keeping my fingers crossed, too.  It will be a more sombre day at Oxford tomorrow than I was expecting.

Yes, I was thinking that and wondering if they'll have a minutes silence when the show starts. We'll just have to gird up our loins and get on with the job, just as the rest of the Red Arrows team will do and always have done after past such events, which are thankfully very rare.

Just heard a statement from his wife on BBC news, very sad and very moving.

RIP Flt Lt John Egging.

The statement on the Bournemouth Airshow website is currently not working due to a dodgy link.  Someone has posted on Facebokk that the RAF have declared that they'll still perform all their displays tomorrow with the obvious exception of the Reds.  I assume the show will be going on as planned unless they declare otherwise if the document ever gets the right link.  Sadly, the continuing lack of positive news had a very worrying air about it.

There will be a couple of books of condolences at the town hall for people to sign, and a collection is to be taken in his memory.  Spare a thought for his poor wife and family.  He was only a year older than me.  :-(  I feel that maybe the VV should make a small donation to the collection, however that's not really up for me to decide, of course.

RIP Eggman.
