Hi guys I wish I was able to join you on slipper so far I have missed two outings. J I am going to have to start charging. It must have been great to fly the NE side again. I need to get home now as I am sick of this Chinese food and hot weather. I need to stand on top of a hill again. Cheers Baron.

Breitling Jet Team crash incident

Posted on Sep 16, 2012 by aerobaticteams.net

http://aerobaticteams.net/news.html

Number 2 of the Breitling Jet Team's L-39s crashed on September 15, near city of near Valkenswaard, Netherlands.

The team just finished its display during Heldair Show Maritiem at Den Helder Airport and departure to Kleine Brogel base, Belgium, on the way to Sanicole Airshow, when the L-39 received engine problems. Both occupants, pilot and engineer ejected safely, while the plane crashed to the ground about 19:30.



I think that makes it 6 L39's down already this year

The team forced to interrupt the remaining air displays for the year and return to its home base at Dijon, France.
