    Tragic news.
    My prayers go out to the family and for the pilot.
    We were informed yesterday at our weekend Square Dance Campout, as the pilot was due to do a fly over for us. Our organiser was very cut up when he announced the tragedy as he had spoken to the pilot not long before to arrange the timings of the visit, and we could not understand why it had been cancelled until the Air Base contacted him.

    I laugh in the face of danger - then I hide until it goes away!

    Saw that when I got in from Middle Wallop yesterday, tragic news, condolences to all involved. Looks like he just missed a residence, I wonder if that had a bearing on anything.

    RIP Sqn Ldr Mark Long - named as the pilot lost in this event.

    He was a Typhoon pilot at RAF Coningsby and for the last four years a pilot with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight [BBMF]. Described as a great friend, colleague, and a passionate, professional aviator, who will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
