Looking at the amateur video and looking at the ground under their flight path on Google Maps given the published geographical location, I suspect that he elected not to eject because of what was on the ground and the possible danger to civilians.

A brave man in my view.

I salute you Sir.

Very sad indeed.
One of the Red Arrows made an emergency landing (following a birdstrike) at Blackpool Airport during a display over Blackpool a couple of weeks back.
Makes you wonder if they will be disbanded (taking into account the current economic climate, this fatal accident and the fact that the aircraft must be reaching the end of their fatigue life).

Whatever happens down the road of spending cuts we will be forever proud of our servicemen and women and today lets all pay due respect to the amazing Red Arrows, they are a credit to the nation and we should never underestimate their position. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Jon Egging and with all serving here and overseas.

My dad used to take me to loads of Airshows, Mildenhall, Duxford and Cranfield!

We saw it's last public display at Cranfields Dreamflight Airshow in 1992! which would of made me 8 years old lol! dam..I still remember it and can feel the rumbling noise of it!

I miss Milldenhall so much! hopefully the 2013 return rumours are true!
