Daily Mail have now pulled story leaving a disjointed muddled story in different tenses and bits from different times of the day. May have been a genuine mistake but how disrespectful? Something like that just shouldn't happen. :-(

I am informed that the MOD have been granted a   "D Notice" from thge courts which means the pilot can not be nammed


A D notice refers to a censorship notice given by the Department of Defence to the media in order to prohibit a publication of information on matters said to be of national security. This system is up to date in use in Britain.

I suspect a D notice has been placed because the MOD have not officially released the name, I have no idea who it was, but I do know I have seen at lest 3 different names mentioned as the unfortunate pilot. Thats why everyone including the press should wait for the official announcement by MOD.

Nice article thanks for the link Sarah

Sad (if that's the right word) that both these unexplained incidents did not occur during displays. They presumably could have occured to any pilot, at any time, in any aircraft. But the headlines will all be two Red Arrows accidents.
Scampton must be a very sombre place.

Both the BBC & Sky are now naming the pilot , so I presume it's been officially released.

These day's they're called DA notices, but they aren't legally binding as they're a request, not a order.  Therefore even if one is issued, it's still up to the paper in question to comply (or not, as it would appear in this case!).
