Truly shocking. Without doubt they are the highlight of the display, and they fly with such precision that an accident like this seems unthinkable. I hope that the pilot has survived.

Best red arrows display I've seen for ages!
Really hope the pilot is ok. We were wondering what the delay was when we got a phone call from a friend telling us the news.

Very shocking indeed, just heard the news on arriving back in Alderney.

They did put on a good show yesterday and a pleasure to meet you Ian.

Even though we were only in the area 24 hours we were lucky to see one of the dolphins near Swanage as well, very playful it was too.

Red Arrow Pilot

Just heard from a reputable source that the pilot ejected, but no info on his condition.

We saw a lot of planes over The Wight today so I guess some were holding off after the crash, even a Lancaster was flying very down The Solent , wonderful sight but missed it on camera.
Only got these four

Hi BBC red button are saying he is seriously injured. Confusing info it seems.
Hope he is ok.

If the show is on tomorrow we will be down, launching from Baiter all being well.
is anyone else going out tomorrow from there? or close to as had a engine issues today.
