Artist's Description

Five of the Team of Nine -Taken at the Bournemouth Air Show yesterday, 20th Aug. it was a beautiful sunny day, the sea sparkled and was filled with small boats all hooting and whistling at the great acrobatic display by The Red Arrows right above them, a wonderful day which was marred by the crash that followed, after leaving their Heart Motif with the Arrow going through they flew across the sea into the horizon and back to the Airfield just 3 miles behind us leaving everyone happy! -they were as usual just amazing!

Red Arrows Team 20/08//2011 Bournemouth

*Then the sad news came through:

Red Arrows grounded after pilot Jon Egging killed*

The RAF’s Red Arrows display team has been grounded while investigators try to establish the cause of a crash in Dorset which killed one of its pilots.

Flt Lt Jon Egging, 33, from Rutland, died when his Hawk T1 aircraft crashed near Bournemouth Airport after a display on Saturday afternoon.

Witnesses described seeing his plane hit the ground in a field by the River Stour near the village of Throop.

Books of condolence are to be opened in Bournemouth later for public tributes.
Dorset Police said Flt Lt Egging, known as ‘Eggman’, was thrown from the aircraft and was pronounced dead at the scene.

*Flt Lt Egging flew on the right hand outside of the Diamond Nine formation

Shortly before the crash, his wife, Dr Emma Egging, had watched him take part in a display at the Bournemouth Air Festival.*
She said later: “Watching him today, I was the proudest I’ve ever been. I loved everything about him, and he will be missed.”
