    The C130 that broke up was a US aircraft that was trialling the system prior to a tactical extraction the following day, (Operation Talon (Iranian hostage)). I believe all the crew died in the crash.

    Wrong! I would not have been so flippant if they had.

    " a medical evacuation helicopter dispersed the flame and crash response teams extinguished the fire within eight seconds of the aircraft stopping, enabling the crew to safely exit the aircraft"

    I remember the Blue Angels displaying at Yeovilton in 1964 ; they used either Tigers with a Cougar as a "spare" , or the other way around !! Anyway ,I thought that they were all quite mad , but more exciting than the Red Arrows' Gnats or the Red Pelicans JPs !!
    At the time , I was in the "Royal Guard" for Prince Philip ; I wonder if there are any more "survivors" out there ??
    Ex- 766 NAS "pinkie" !!

    Saw the first show by the Reds, last Sunday at Duxford, Was a very good performance and back to a 9 ship formation, most of the different airforce teams are very good and each have their own speciality. I have pics of quite a few, from the South Koreans to the Saudi's etc.
