Airshow Plane Crashes into Cars on A27 at Shoreham, West Sussex

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34027260

"A Hawker Hunter plane has crashed into several vehicles after coming down at Shoreham Airshow in West Sussex.

Sussex Police said there are several casualties, but could not give details on their condition.

The plane crashed into vehicles on the nearby A27. The road is likely to remain closed for several hours.

Eyewitness Stephen Jones said the plane was performing a loop but did not complete the manoeuvre and crashed. Police said it ended up in a bush.

He said: "The aeroplane involved is a Hawker Hunter T mark 7. And he'd just begun his flying display.

"He'd gone up into a loop and as he was coming out of the loop I just thought, you're too low, you're too low, pull up.

"And he flew straight into the ground either on or very close to the A27, which runs past the airport."

Seven people have died after a Hawker Hunter plane crashed into several vehicles during Shoreham Airshow.

South East Coast Ambulance Service said the victims all died at the scene, with a further person being taken to hospital in critical condition.

The plane crashed on the nearby A27 in West Sussex. The road is likely to remain closed for several hours.

Eyewitnesses said the plane was performing a loop but did not complete the manoeuvre and crashed.

Stephen Jones, who saw the crash, said: "The aeroplane involved is a Hawker Hunter T mark 7. And he'd just begun his flying display.

"He'd gone up into a loop and as he was coming out of the loop I just thought, you're too low, you're too low, pull up.

"And he flew straight into the ground either on or very close to the A27, which runs past the airport."

A spokesman for the Royal Sussex County Hospital said two men had been taken to the hospital, one in a critical condition and the other with minor injuries. Ten other casualties are being treated at the scene.

One eyewitness, tweeting as Jon B, said: "It (the plane) turned from the north by Lancing College, went to go low towards the airfield and went behind some trees below where I was.

"Then there was a crunch sound and a ball of flames and thick black smoke came up from the ground."

Seven dead so far. Its a one man plane right? it crashed on a busy road. Maybe risky moves should take place away from public areas.

Edit - the pilot is still alive
