Sad News . . . .
« on: Thursday October 30, 2008, 19:30:10 UTC »
Yesterday Ian Davies who flew a Chipmunk at Seething in Norfolk and was part of the "Red Sparrows" Chipmunk display team was killed when an aircraft that he was in is believed to have struck a tractor on landing!
Condolences to his family :cry:
It was not a Chipmunk aircraft that was involved.  The 2nd person on board is in a critical condition - my heart goes out to his wife and family and hope and pray for a speedy recovery :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
