  • Best Video Version. Air Show Crash in England.

    Shoreham Air Show, Sussex England.
    A 1950's Hawker Hunter jet didn't quite make the round on a tight loop and hit the nearby highway killing at least 7.

      Not for sure but right at the end it appears that he went into a high speed stall and just mushed into the ground. His flaps were also partially deployed but from what I've heard this was normal for aerobatics in this aircraft. I hate to think what it would feel like when you get to the point that no matter what you try to do you are going in.

          Oh well, at least with an accident like that, nobody will ever discover the stains in his underwear...
