British pilot dies in air show crash

Flight Lieutenant Jon 'Eggman' Egging, 33, was killed when his plane crashed near Bournemouth Airport in Dorset after a demonstration, The Sun reported.

"I heard a rushing sound and I saw a plane about 15m above the ground racing across the fields.

"It impacted and bounced across the field, made it across the river...Members of the public jumped into the water to search for the cockpit," Shaun Spencer-Perkins, an eyewitness, was quoted as saying.
