ORGANISERS of the Red Arrows displays in Torquay and Dartmouth have confirmed that their displays will not go ahead.

The news was announced this afternoon.

Torbay Royal Regatta organisers and their counterparts in Dartmouth had been on 'official standby' following the Bournemouth airshow tragedy.

The Arrows were due to fly tomorrow evening in Torbay and on Friday in Dartmouth.

Debbie Selley, of Torbay Royal Regatta committee, confirmed the news this afternoon, and the Dartmouth Royal Regatta made their own announcement.

Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging was killed when his Hawk T1 aircraft Red 4 crashed around 1km south east of Bournemouth Airport at 13.50 hours on Saturday.

A Red Arrows spokesman confirmed: “Officially we are on standby and cannot say any more at this time.

“A full Service Inquiry into the details of the crash has been initiated. It would be inappropriate to speculate on the causes of the incident at this time.”

    Conkerhead, I am now very worried. I am trying to work out what you are, with so many different names both female and male and evil postings. Determining if your views are female or male is now becoming difficult.. Maybe your alien with so much evil in your mind, your definitely not Christian, strange???

    So you are the same

    Larry - Martinblubber considers himself a normal christian upholding normal christian values. He also thinks that he is right about everything and any group of people who disagree with him must be one troll using lots of names and therefore unimportant and open to abuse. I think christians have behave like this quite often throughout history.

    Is it LarrytheLover or conkerhead or one of the many names used by the same person with more insensible comments towards the normal compassionate people in society who care about other normal people in society? I guess we will never know!

    What a surprise Martinbubba the Christian warrior making aggressive anti-gay comments. You had the audacity to call Conkerhead vile and evil. Seems like even though you belive in something you still cannot be considerate of other peoples veiws when they differ from your own: then that is the problem with these zealots. You are right though Jason and Conkerhead it was lovely and peaceful last night, no noxious diesel vapour filling my delicate lungs!

    Conkerhead, you only worry about what nail varnish and lip gloss you are using while drinking your pint of beer. No one can take you serious as we don't know what name you will use next. You're more harmful to the environment than the Red Arrows have ever been. So many names you have in commenting as a Transvestite

    I just worry about the effect all the noise and pink dyed diesel has on the native wildlife and coastline birds in such special enviroment as Torbay. Save the planet.

  • JasonMint  |  August 24 2011, 6:03PM

    That is not "Red" dyed diesel. It is more pink. I bet Nick Bye would have loved that. Hey conckerhead, Can you hear that in the sky tonight? Its nice and peacefully think.

  • Martinbubba  |  August 24 2011, 5:28PM

    conkerhead, the noise would worry an evil Transvestite like yourself and discolour your makeup.

  • conkerhead  |  August 24 2011, 5:13PM

    ....all that noise pollution as well.
