(RAW VIDEO) Shoreham airshow Horror as jet plane crashes in fireball during seaside display
An aircraft has reportedly crashed in southern England, during the Shoreham Airshow. The plane that crashed was reportedly a Hawker Hunter, a British fighter aircraft.

The A27 near Brighton city airport has been closed in both directions. The airport was where the event – formally known as the Royal Air Forces Association air show – was being held.

One report said the plane was attempting a loop manoeuvre before it collided with four cars as it hit the ground. Another unconfirmed report said that two cyclists were injured in the crash.

The BBC reported that the pilot was pulled from the burning wreckage of the jet and that he was recovering in hospital.

Sussex police said emergency services were on the scene, while Shoreham air show tweeted: “There has been a major incident outside the airfield boundary. The emergency services are responding. Updates will follow when available.”
