Air show crash pilot had undiagnosed heart problem « Shropshire Star

One of Britain’s top aerobatics pilot who was killed when his plane crashed during a display was suffering from an undiagnosed heart condition, accident investigators have said. David Jenkins, 61, was flying his Edge 360 plane during a media event to launch the Old Buckenham air show in Norfolk on April 22 last year when he experienced problems. A report by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) found that he crashed after losing control during an “advanced aerobatic tumbling manoeuvre”.

The aircraft entered a spin “at relatively low height” and hit the ground “without any apparent attempt at recovery”, the investigators stated. The AAIB said Mr Jenkins was found to have a “serious and previously undiagnosed heart condition” which “may have affected his judgment”. It is possible he became “incapacitated at a critical stage of the flight”, the report added.

The moment the aircraft began to lose control was caught on camera by a local television crew. Witnesses first thought the manoeuvre was part of the daredevil display until smoke began billowing from the ground. Mr Jenkins was a two-time British advanced aerobatics champion.

He was a member of the Wildcat Aerobatic Team based at Old Buckenham Airfield, near Attleborough, where the event was taking place.

At the time of the crash he was described by friends as “one of the best” and “highly skilled”.

Why are English people so cold and unfriendly? 0

Why are English people so cold and unfriendly?

Why are English people so cold? Perhaps this is the reason so many foreigners fail to integrate properly into society in the UK? I am a foreigner totally grateful to the UK for giving me a passport (married to a Brit for 21 years) as the chances of being killed where I come from are pretty good.

However, in all the time I spent living in the UK (five years in total), although I’m blue-eyed, blonde and speak perfect English with just a 5% accent, I am always regarded as being foreign. All my friends are foreign too mainly because we have come to realise we are all in the same boat. My best friend is Swedish and has lived here in the UK for about 12 years.

Even after that length of time living in the UK she says I am still the only person who has ever invited her home for a coffee! We’re told we have to be patient and that it takes time for an English person to trust you (say four years of knowing you), but then once they are friends with you, they are the best friends in the world. Well, I’m afraid I’ve given up trying and hoping.

you really don’t want us to be here Is it perhaps because your mothers never breast fed you and thus did not expose you to the first essential human warmth that we should all know? Or is it because you really are all xenophobic and your government, in its multicultural tendencies has failed to realise this basic truth? Perhaps it is just because you are SO polite, politically correct and you really don’t want us to be here, so instead of telling us sincerely, you pretend to put up with us because you really don’t want to become our friends?

Since first moving to the UK, I decided to move away again and have lived abroad for seven years. During that time I have never failed to make friends with the locals, and quickly too. So why are the English so aloof with foreigners?
