took the kids to see red arrows on saturday, when we got home heard the very sad news, im soo gutted for every one that new him, what a brave man he new he was going to crash and made sure he did not hit anyones home. a hero. RIP.
My (and my Red Arrow-mad family's) condolences to Jon's wife and family and friends. He will be remembered as a hero, who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
When I heard this on Saturday, that was all I could think of too.
Should the lady concerned see these messages of condolence, could she please be good enough to extend them to her brother and the rest of the team ? Maybe show them the thread/s so that they see just how much they are admired and appreciated ? Thank you.
My father had a call immediately after the incident, but didnt get to the phone. My brother simply left the voicemail message 'its not me'. We had no idea what was going on until we saw the news and by that time the whole lot had gone into 'lockdown' and we couldnt actually get hold of him until late on Saturday night.
Thank you very much all for your kind messages - my brother, and the rest of the team do appreciate stuff like this - it does help.
