Shoreham air crash report finds jet ‘had expired parts’
21 December 2015
From the section Sussex
The report said the accident response was delayed in the area near the ejector seats
A jet that crashed during the Shoreham air show, killing 11 men, had expired ejector seat parts and an out-of-date technical manual, a report has said.
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) also said it could not determine if the aircraft met the requirements of its Permit to Fly.
A final report is still to be published, but seven safety recommendations have already been made.
The Hawker Hunter jet plummeted onto traffic on the A27 on 22 August.
