    Yes I agree lots of things COULD of happened including flights to and from airfields which again are extremely rare. your more than likely to get hurt crossing the road or in a car crash than being hurt at an airshow/fly in etc.

    Just in case you missed it the first time:



    This guy is very much not helping the pilot to get out, and takes photographs the second the clods of soil cease falling from the sky.

    There is a real risk of an explosion, are you saying that every single person in line of sight should immediately run towards the fuelled powered machine that has has had a catastrophic accident? When there are a few people running to assist, who are capable of asking for further assistance if required? I didn't notice any available 'slots' when it came to spectators helping lift it.

    Be careful, the Daily Mail will be quoting you two when they learn of this latest 'jet' disaster.

    They could have chosen their words better, nose-over instead of nosedive

    Title needs to be changed to stop us thinking it's a new incident. Gotta look after my heart, it getting old.

    Agreed, simply add the date of the crash to the title.

    You look at the thread title, check the number of replies, number of views and the light should go on that this is not 'new' !

    Editing the title is not a facility available to me, the original poster. My understanding is that only a moderator can do that.

    The incident when reported was only a couple hours old.

    The time and date of the post is surely clear to all and the first paragraph gives the basic facts as known at that time.
