As it crashed inside the college, will it be considered like a 'Traffic Accident in Barracks'?

Apparently (PPrune being the source):

1. It's a Red Arrows cab (edit - some other sources now say that it isn't)
2. The jet didn't 'come down', it landed and the u/c collapsed
3. The u/c collapse sent the aircraft off the runway and into the ATC car park
4. Crew parted company with errant steed and hopefully OK, but transported to QEMC.

Edit - Pprune has already started discussing whether or not this invalidates the insurance of any cars damaged in the incident...

Interesting point. I was working in Netheravon when Direct Line excluded airfields from their policy and I wondered whether they would have done a runner had I claimed for an accident on the camp! When and where does the airfield end?

Thank Heaven no-one was seriously injured.

Reckon the provost staff stuck an illegally parked sticker on it?

More likely the local cops have put "Police Aware" signs and tape around it.

To be fair, the Harrier that went down a few months ago was flown by the Navy... Navy should stick to boats.
And RAF should stick to civvie street! :roll:
