    Maybe for the same reason that, generally, air displays do not carry on after the crash of a displaying aircraft - because the fire crews and tenders are all off base and unable to cover for another incident?

    I too was confused about the times given by the media. Would a statement from the base about incident that had just occurred have been given in anything other than the time local to that incident? Apparently so. Nowhere has it been said that the crash occurred just after take off, but the indications are all there for it either to have happened then or because it had to return for some reason. I am sure I saw somewhere that the six aircraft had been unable to meet with a tanker, yet I cannot find any trace of that now.
