The 14th Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival 2010

Red Arrows Aerobatic Team - Diamond Nine.

 

A special tribute has been held at the Bournemouth Air Festival 2011 for the pilot killed when one of the RAF's Red Arrows crashed following a display.

 

Flt Lt Jon Egging, 33, from Rutland, died when his Hawk T1 aircraft crashed into a field at the village of Throop near the airport on Saturday afternoon

 

The RAF said Flt Lt Egging, who grew up in Southam, Warwickshire, joined the team in the autumn of 2010 and flew on the right hand outside of the famous Diamond Nine formation.

 

The number of books of condolence open in Bournemouth for public tributes has now been increased to six, with hundreds of people queuing at the town hall to add their signatures.

 

The council said it would hand the books to Flt Lt Egging's family, along with any donations given by members of the public for the family's chosen charity.
