Is that the "German" Bronco that we've seen at airshows in The Netherlands?

Sad news :cry: ; all the best to Tony and his team!

Aircraft is OV-10B (G-BZGK)/99+32, last seen in the static park at RIAT. And again (although of minor concern), this news could also be posted in the vintage, warbirds etc. section (edit: where it has now appeared after an initial posting in the military section :wink:) .

Regarding the title of this thread: It happened at Kemble airfield, now called Cotswold airport. Not in Kent, that is a county in the south-east of the UK.

Yesterday morning I drove by Kemble to photograph Britannia XM496 in good light, and was very surprised to see the Bronco wreck.
I got a picture from the parking lot before being told to leave by the controller in the tower.

The wreck is very close to the tower and far from the runway, so it probably did happen during aerobatics.

"We wanted to inform you that there was an incident on the 10th July 2012 at Kemble (Cotswold Airport, UK) concerning Tony and the Bronco.

At approx. 15:00 in good flying conditions, Tony choose to take the opportunity to practise a standard display program.
Unfortunately, shortly into the flight there was a problem and Tony and the Bronco had a crash landing from low altitude into the grass strip in front of the control tower.

The Bronco was destroyed on impact, but Tony managed to open the cockpit himself and was helped out by the fire crew.

He was talking and moving all limbs and taken by helicopter to Franchay hospital in Bristol. He is presently in a stable condition with some burns and back injuries.

Following on from his initial assessment he has subsequently had a successful operation on his back injury and is receiving treatment for his burns.

All the signs are for a positive full recovery; we will keep you updated.

Hereby we would like to thank the fire, rescue and hospital services for their professional assistance and care.
Thank you to everyone for your help, support and kind wishes at this time.

The Bronco Demo Team
Released on 12th July 2012"

Yeah,

Looking at the crash pics, there was indeed an Airspeed is Life, Height is Life Insurance problem.

BTW doesn't he have a second (stored or in restoration) OV-10 Bronco?
