Tony Brightwell hoped to pilot aircraft again one day, his fiancee said
The sixth victim of the Shoreham air crash has been named as a 53-year-old health worker and aircraft enthusiast who had learnt to fly at the airport.
The family of Tony Brightwell, from Hove, said he was indulging his passion of watching planes and cycling before he died when the Hawker Hunter crashed.
He gained his private pilot’s licence many years ago at Shoreham and regularly visited the airfield.
He had hoped to take up flying again himself one day.
His fiancee Lara said: “I watched him cycle off into the sun on his treasured ridgeback bike to watch the air show at Shoreham for a couple of hours, but he never came home.”
