Shoreham plane crash: seven dead after fighter jet hits cars during air show

Seven people have been killed after a fighter jet taking part in the Shoreham air show crashed on to a road on Saturday afternoon.

Sussex police said the aircraft hit four cars on the A27 just north of Shoreham airport, where the Royal Air Forces Association air show was being held.

South-East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust said seven people were declared dead at the scene, while one patient with life-threatening injuries was taken to the Royal Sussex County hospital. A further 14 patients were treated for minor injuries.

The hospital said it was put on alert for a major incident at 2pm. β€œThe aircraft ended up in a bush. There have been several casualties, but we have no further information on these at the moment,” the spokesman said.

The A27 remains closed in both directions and drivers have been told to avoid the area. The interchange at Lancing is also closed.

The plane involved – a Hawker Hunter single-seat fighter jet – was attempting a loop manoeuvre, but failed to pull out. One eyewitness said the pilot did not eject before the plane hit the ground.

Just horrible.... :cry: My sincere condolences to the families who lost a loved one.

I read in the newspaper this morning that the pilot survived. It's not the first time a horrible accident happened on a air show.
