Displays | Classic Airshow, Coventry, 31st May 2003


The crash of the Spirit of St. Louis replica and the death of it's pilot was a tragic end to the Classic Airshow. I had left the Show just prior to the tragedy and was shocked to hear the news the following day.  The Show had contained remarkable displays by aircraft such as a North American Sabre, Lockheed T33, Meteor NF11 and De Havilland Sea Vixen, however the sad events that followed prevent me from going into further detail about the show.

The bravery of the pilots who fly historic aircraft for the enjoyment of people like myself never ceases to amaze me.
