Seven people were killed when a vintage military jet crashed onto the A27 in Shoreham, Sussex, UK. The Hawker Hunter single-seat jet was built in the 1950s. The Sunday segment of the show has been cancelled. Fourteen others on the highway were injured, one critically.
The Hawker Hunter jet was flying a loop when it nose-dived about 1:20 p.m. local time...The plane struck several vehicles on the road, said CNN correspondent Ian Lee, reporting from the airport. The pilot was pulled from the wreckage and is in critical condition, ambulance personnel told CNN.
Hmmm, maybe. I'm using the big white roof. Maybe the white building is on that 2013 construction site. That would factor in a brown-roofed building on the right on GE. But, looking at the shot below, I can't find the double-chimney houses on GE. Same for the Nissen hut in another shot on the BBC report.
Photo from BBC, which also states that more bodies may be found and that the pilot is "fighting for his life."
Hi Just going through some of the old posts and saw this, the Hunter crashed between the two pins. It went down just to the left of the traffic lights and if you look at the image dated 09/10/15 you can see a big brown patch of land with the road into the airfield still sealed off with a fence along the road stopping passing traffic see the crash site. I normally go to this show and watch from near there luckly I could not make this one.

frankmcvey: Hi, syzygy, that was a false alarm, old friend - it was caused by a Proboards admin accessing the forum to investigate forum ownership after Steve's passing. You may see TheLedge appear again from time to time, while while we continue handover/takeover.
