Yes , a very sad loss.We have seen the Red Arrows several times and they are amazing. Sad that this happened after he had survived Afghanistan.
Deepest sympathy and respect to his family. x

This is a lovely tribute John. I saw the Red Arrows at Southport Airshow a few weeks ago and they were magnificent as always.
In my opinion they are among the very best that this country has to offer and they make me feel so very proud to be British.
You were'nt a Wiganner Jon Egging but you graced Wigan's skies as in this photo. Rest In Peace!
