Mid air collision between Jaguar XZ116 and Tornado ZA493 of 20 Squadron. The Tornado, No1 in a 2 aircraft formation, was in a left hand turn around Dod Crag in the Borrowdale Valley near Keswick, Cumbria. The starboard wing struck the cockpit area of the Jaguar which was flying in the opposite direction killing the pilot- Flight Lieutenant Andrew Simon Mannheim - instantly.

The second Tornado had to pull up hard to avoid the subsequent fireball. The Tornado crew ejected safely
