Red Arrow's pilot death : MOD could be charged

Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham

The Ministry of Defence could face criminal charges over the death of a Red Arrows pilot at RAF Scampton in Lincoln. Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham died when he was ejected from his Hawk T1 aircraft and the parachute failed to open.

Now Lincolnshire Police have passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service who are expected to decide whether charges should be brought against the MOD by the end of the month.
