Miss World Competition at Kemble on the first Red Arrows training season with the Hawk, August 1982. Photo: ARG Archive (as from yesterday!). Anyone know the Mark and Model numbers ?
"cotswold airport" has a new website.
Just seen that the Rockwell OV-10 Bronco crashed at Kemble a couple of days ago, Pilot airlifted to Bristol Hospital and reportedly ok and now recovering.
Does anyone have any more information on the incident?
At least the aircraft can be replaced. Get well soon Tony De Bruyn.
From the Bronco Demo Team themselves:
Dear Bronco friends,
We wanted to inform you that there was an incident on the 10th July 2012 at Kemble (Cotswold Airport, UK) concerning Tony and the Bronco. At approx. 15:00 in good flying conditions, Tony choose to take the opportunity to practice a standard display program. Unfortunately, shortly into the flight there was a problem and Tony and the Bronco had a crash landing from low altitude into the grass strip in front of the control tower.
The Bronco was destroyed on impact, but Tony managed to open the cockpit himself and was helped out by the fire crew. He was talking and moving all limbs and taken by helicopter to Franchay hospital in Bristol. He is presently in a stable condition with some burns and back injuries.
Following on from his initial assessment he has subsequently had a successful operation on his back injury and is receiving treatment for his burns.
All the signs are for a positive full recovery; we will keep you updated.
Thank you to everyone for their help, support and kind wishes at this time.
The Bronco Demo Team
Tony is a friend of mine - met him for the first time at Waddington Airshow the other week and since then have been doing the rounds of shows along with their team up until Monday when I flew back to Kemble in G-FFOX when he was there to watch my arrival... Chatting to him post-flight I looked forward to our next encounter, how my heart sank when I heard the terrible news the very next day
Thankfully he is on the mend, and I'll be in touch with him once he is able to be in contact again.
Is the current control tower a WW2 era building & is it in it's original location?
