A message from the chairman of the Uffington White Horse Show Derek Kelsey, MBE
Following the tragic accident at The Bournemouth Air Festival on 20 August 2011 at which Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging, Red 4, was fatally injured, The White Horse Show Committee have extended their deepest sympathy and condolences to his wife, family and colleagues within the Red Arrows Team at this very difficult time.
The Red Arrows are planned to appear at the forthcoming Uffington White Horse Show on Monday 29 August 2011. The team have been temporarily grounded during the investigation into the cause of this sad accident.
Other than information currently in the public domain we do not, at this time, have any further details. However, we will issue, via a press release and an update at www.whitehorseshow.co.uk full details relating to Monday 29 August 2011 as they become available.
The Uffington White Horse Show will definitely be going ahead and we will in any case have many other exciting attractions, details of which can be found on our website. We also intend to remember Flight Lieutenant Egging appropriately at the Show.
