Update 16:21 20/08/2011

The MOD have confirmed the death of Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging of the Royal Air Force Aerobatics Team, The Red Arrows. Bournemouth Borough Council and Bournemouth Air Festival will issue a statement shortly.

(Aircraft callsign was "Red 4": this ties in with earlier reports - now confirmed - and the team's website, which lists Jon Egging as "Red 4")

Note: Previously listed Registration & C/N were not that of the aircraft which was written-off. There are numerous reports of XX308 being involved, as this is usually the jet flown by 'Red4' - but in this instance Red4 was using another Hawk aircraft. I have seen a photo of XX308 taken at Bournemouth Airport today - which proves it was NOT the jet involved - despite all rumours & reports of it being the one which crashed.
