Battery left at field.

Not sure but think I may have left a battery on the box by the strip tonight after rushing off to recover plane from field?

It was Red 4 which was Dave Davies from Llysfaen for2 years but I've made enquiries and Dave's number is now Red 8 and he's on the last year of his tour with the Reds

I saw the display on my way home from Poole yesterday about 1600 they were just doing the fan, so the timings on the link can't be right unless it was lost on the way to the show

I think they may have been flying two displays today Rich, the info I have was that the crash was around 13.30 and was during the display. There's supposed to be an announcement within the hour.

Terribly sad news, we met him and the others at the southport airshow a couple of weeks back, spent 20 minutes chatting to us at our table - nice guy.
Sincere condolences to his family, and the rest of the team who will be gutted.
