Vintage Jet Fighter plane crashes at airshow in Shoreham, Sussex, UK

Two German stunt planes collide at Swiss Airshow

SUSSEX: Thousands of spectators watched in horror as a vintage fighter jet crashed into a busy road after a stunt went wrong at an air show in Sussex in southeast England today.

At least seven people were killed as the Hawker Hunter aeroplane taking part in the Shoreham air show crashed into traffic, media reports said. More than a dozen suffered minor injuries.

The pilot, however, was pulled from the burning wreckage and is now recovering in hospital, a Daily Mail report said.

Videos shot by witnesses showed the 1950s fighter jet make a loop-the-loop stunt and then crash into the highway, exploding in a massive fireball.
