i am deeply saddened by this news these are the heros i grew up watching, nothing is more patriotic in the uk than seeing these guys do there thing and to loose two in a year is criminal. especially when it involves a saftey device cuss

early reports seem to indicate it was red 5 sean cunningham 35, but we still await full conformation

ejector seat malfunctioned on the ground sending him through the glass then chute not opened.
