    Latest from BBC News is that Sussex Police have stated that the death toll might yet be higher, as they are still investigating the site, on the A27 road at the north of the airfield. The road will remain closed until further notice
    The pilot was pulled from the wreck alive., but is in a serious condition in hospital.
    BTW, there are already two thread covering this tragic accident.

    Looks like 'One of those years' !
    Shoreham, Dittingen, and the loss of the Gnat and pilot at Oulton Park a few weeks back.
    If the old adage "Accidents happen in threes" is to be believed, then let's hope these three are the end.
