Shoreham air crash: Jet showed no 'abnormal indications'

Footage from cockpit cameras in the vintage jet involved in the Shoreham air disaster in England has revealed the aircraft showed “no abnormal indications” during the flight, according to air crash investigators.

The “special bulletin” by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) also reported that the video showed the Hawker Hunter jet “appeared to be responding to the pilot’s control inputs”.

Eleven people died when the plane plummeted on to the A27 in West Sussex during the Shoreham Airshow on August 22.

The jet failed to pull out of a loop-the-loop stunt before crashing on to the road, exploding into a fireball.
