Appears that it was a Gnat T1 that crashed...


The Folland Gnat was a small, swept-wing British subsonic jet trainer and light fighter aircraft developed for the Royal Air Force, and flown extensively by the Indian Air Force. The Gnat became well known as the mount for the RAF Red Arrows aerobatic team. The Gnat was exported to Finland, Yugoslavia and India, The Indian Air Force became the largest operator and eventually manufactured the aircraft under licence. India then developed the HAL Ajeet, a modified and improved variant.

The latest is that the pilot didn't survive the crash, and a couple of witnesses have suggested that it appeared to experience a fault and that the pilot directed the aircraft away from the festival site as it nosedived out of sight.

Tragic, of course, but his or her quick thinking potentially saved many lives.
