BBC have obtained closer footage (im guessing from the guy who's voice you hear in one of the videos saying he filmed the whole thing) and edited the main crash out of the vid...but i cant seem to find the full unedited anywhere...

As someone pointed out in another thread, all that surrounding open field and he hit a road.

it looks like it but that's not what's happening as non military aircraft aren't allowed to be equipped with ejector seats....

something to do with the explosives used in the seats from what i've read...

He definitely didn't eject - pretty sure it's been confirmed that the ejection system is removed from ex-military planes because they're basically explosives. I think in that shot, it's just the canopy coming away as the plane basically disintegrates.

Critical condition or not, it boggles my mind that the pilot is still alive.

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

in that picture you can see the silver car that got destroyed....it's either turning right, right into the path of the plane or the photo as taken just at the moment the plane touched the car and knocked it off course.....

i haven't seen that audi or the red or the blue car in any of the destruction pics..... lucky fuckers!!!!

I think the pilot'll live but quickly off himself in despair.

I hope he doesn't as he has a very good record and is probably a helluva guy.

Now, should he get sued? Yeah, he was at fault, no defense.

personally i think he's a little mad doing loops in a plane that was built in 1955......but i suppose they can handle it or he wouldn't have been doing it
I'm saying if the planes instruments were adjusted for a location higher that Shoreham, he'd be off.

If it were in a location 500 ft above sea level last week and the instruments had not been adjusted, he'd be thinking he was 500 ft higher.
