Seven people have died after a plane crash at Shoreham Air Show in West Sussex south east England. The plane, a 1950s Hawker Hunter fighter jet, came down as it was performing a loop. Media reports suggest the aircraft stalled mid-manoeuvre. Plumes of thick, black smoke could be seen billowing across the sky. It crashed over the busy A27 road, to the north of Shoreham airport, hitting several cars before coming to a stop in a nearby bush. The South East Coast Ambulance Service said seven people had died. Unconfirmed reports suggest the pilot managed to escape before the collision, although this cannot be seen on the images. Some 20,000 people attended this year’s event, organised by the Royal Air Forces Association. It’s the second deadly incident at the Shoreham Air Show in eight years. In 2007, pilot and James Bond stuntman Brian Brown died when he performed an unplanned barrel roll in a World War Two Hurricane.
