In one of these pictures you see about 20 to 40 people stood at the side of the road yards from the crash site seconds before the plane hits the ground someone must of got a vid out of that lot

That's not edited as far as I can see - there's a massive explosion at the end of the video?

Altimeter (barometric pressure) is usually adjusted as part of a pre-flight check, before every flight.

It is, but incorrect altimeter settings have been the cause of several aviation mishaps over the years, as you know. It was the first possibility I thought of in this case.

(15 SEP 2003, Thunderbirds F-16 pilot Capt. Chris Stricklin set his altimeter incorrectly and destroyed his a/c (he ejected) at an arishow in Idaho.)

Still think it will come back to pilot error...You can see in some of the pre-impact stills the flaps were down and people said they did hear him spool up the engine..Maybe he had a grey out and reacted to late due to disorientation

==========================================



Bride's anguish over chauffeur 'killed in Shoreham air show crash' as he drove to pick her up for her wedding...


Rebecca and Rajendran Asekaran (pictured) went ahead with their big day and only found out about the Shoreham Airshow disaster which claimed the lives of 20 people after the ceremony.


The couple's driver was on his way to collect the bride from her home when a Hawker Hunter fighter jet smashed into the luxury Daimler (pictured) and ripped off the vintage car's roof on the A27.

A bride has paid tribute to the chauffeur who is believed to have been killed in the Shoreham crash as he drove to pick her up for her wedding.

Meanwhile Rebecca Asekaran’s father has told of her upset and guilt after finding out about the tragedy during her big day.

The bride was left bemused when her limo did not arrive at her home in Goring-by-Sea, West Sussex.

After trying the mobile number of the driver, her father Paul Sheen decided to drive her to the ceremony 15 minutes away at Findon Manor in Findon.

Mr Sheen, 61, said his daughter and her husband Rajendran, 47, only found out about the disaster hours later.

Guests saw pictures of a burnt-out Daimler limousine on the internet and concluded the wedding car must have been caught up in the fireball on the A27.

Well, it's not quite Sknyliv, but it's bad enough.

When will these tools learn to not pull manouvres over populated areas?

The Red Arrows refuse to perform there due to safety reasons.
