      The last sentence of the report is very telling "It was only providence that prevented this accident from resulting in a catastrophic outcome." Safe Legends everyone

        For those interested, one of the pilots involved has given an honest critique of the incident that others can learn from (Appendix 1 in the attached link):

            Agreed. Im sure everyone from both sides of the fence appreciates honesty and I need to do better rather than excuses and finger pointing.
            Safe weekend guys!

              Thanks for posting the CAA document Auster Fan.

              The AAIB report and John Dodd's article prove that no matter how well trained, professional, and experienced a display pilot you are, there is still be 'human factors' that will sometimes make their presence.

                Notice that the CAA gets the designations correct...
                There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

                  I wonder if it's beyond the wit of man to come up with an air display 3d digital simulation on a pc, so everyone can see what the briefing is describing.
                  "The 262's most dangerous opponent :- Hawker Tempest - extremely fast at low altitudes, highly-manoeuvrable and heavily-armed."

                    Maybe itd be a good idea to have transparency. Lets get that display briefing in the public domain...
