But have you seen Princess Juliana airport on St. Maarten? Looks like the best fun.

A Typhoon has crashed into the sea while displaying in Italy, killing the pilot- (Warning, fatal crash footage, obviously)



EDIT to add- composite image of the accident-

-and two Mustangs nearly took each other out at Duxford yesterday with the prop of one touching the tail of another-

It's rather too early to speculate, but the Typhoon crash bears tragic hallmarks of G-LOC.

There appears to have been no attempt to pull out of the dive and there was no attempt at ejecting either - at least, judging from what can be seen here.

Very sad indeed.

I saw an altogether happier display by a Typhoon a few days back. Amazing what a brilliant pilot, FBW, a lightweight airframe, a set of canards and a surfeit of power can do!

Reminded me of the BAC Lightning displays of yore. Almost as good! ;)

Local police were busy the other day with a downed light aircraft in the Embleton area.
