    Saddest thing I've seen in such a long time. Thank you Red 4 for two days of wonderful breathtaking sights.

    This guy was a real hero, managing to stay at the controls to make sure that the plane did not crash into a populated area.
    RIP Jon a very sad loss.

    An incredible person and a dedicated pilot. What a terrible waste of life.

    We were at the Shoreham Airshow today and Steven was given a couple of Red Arrows posters - it has Flt Lt Egging's photo on it at the Red 4 station.

    We bought Steven a model Arrows jet as our tribute.
