WINGS and Wheels - the annual popular air show at Dunsfold - has paid its respect to the member of the Red Arrows team who lost his life on Saturday.

The show’s website carries the message ‘The Wings & Wheels team would like to offer our deepest condolences to the Red Arrows and the family and friends of Flt Lt Jon Egging’ and includes the official statement from the Red Arrows.

Flt Lt Egging died in an accident in which his plane crashed after taking part in the Bournemouth Air Show.

Wings and Wheels takes place on Sunday and Monday next weekend (August 28/29) and was due to feature the Red Arrows on the Sunday.

The Red Arrows team, however, has grounded its planes indefinitely while investigations are carried out following the tragedy.
