Red Arrows Crash

For those of you who don't know, today a Red Arrows hawk experienced a failure, it is not known exactly what has happened yet, this eventually lead to the aircraft crash landing and the pilot, Jon Egging to be killed.

Again, for those of you who don't know, the Red Arrows are the Royal Air Force's display team and are known worldwide for their high risk manoeuvres, they have dazzled crowds around the world since 1965 and they are universally excepted as the best aerial display team in the world.

What we do know is that Jon Egging actually stayed in his jet until until the very end in order to prevent it from crashing into the nearby city of Bournemouth, when the time came for him to eject it was already too late, his body was found floating in a river near the crash site soon afterwards.

This man is without a doubt a hero, and I think we here at sharenator should honour this brave pilot, as should the Royal Air Force, Britain and the entire world. I am proud to belong to the same country as this man did and I also hope to join the Royal Air Force myself.
