I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.
I was tired yesterday, and I\'m tired again today.

:-(

A tiny bit odd that they don't want to say who it was for a few days, but I guess they have their reasons.  I'll be breaking out my Hawk pin bage in memory.

Tragic news.

No doubt this latest occurence will probably result in another 'grounding' - until the investigation is completed. The Team must be gutted at this latest fatality.

2011 is proving to be a very bad year for the Reds  :(  :o

In utter disbelief at the loss of the second Red Arrows pilot this year.  It's inconceivable what the other pilots and crew must be going through now.  My thoughts are with the pilot's family tonight.

No sign of that yet.....not suprisingly , it's been announced that the Red Arrows have suspended all training & appearances.

Have alook at the daIlymail website - they seem pretty sure who it was as they have now displayed his photo - shocking in my eyes as the family asked for grace until his name was released. RIP to the pilot.. another black day for aviation.
