Appreciation For Flt Lt Jon Egging By Debbie Francis
R.I.P Jon Egging Red 4. I watched you and the rest of the Arrows fly into Bournemouth Airport several times this season before your final arrival to stay last Wednesday afternoon for our Festival. You flew directly over my house before your display at Cowes a few weeks ago. I watched the display last Friday and your last on Saturday only minutes before your crash less than two miles from my house. I stood on the beach for the minutes silence with thousands of others on Sunday. It was so very quiet I could hear the sea lapping the shore. So much respect for the hero who gave, with his team, so much pleasure and then sacrificed his life to prevent his stricken plane from ploughing into houses near the airport in his final seconds of life. A hero the people of Bournemouth will never forget.
