The newly released picture shows two men apparently uninjured despite being stood so near to the Hawker Hunter as it crashed on the A27 at Shoreham.

Sussex Police assistant chief constable Steve Barry said the death toll could increase.

Sussex police have estimated that there were 11 fatalities in the crash, but warned yesterday that the number could rise as it emerged that more than 200 people have contacted the force following Saturday’s crash.

Britain’s air transport regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), said it had begun a review of airshows and had placed new restrictions on events as a result of Saturday’s crash.

Further displays will be limited to flypasts, which means “high energy” aerobatics – such as the loop-the-loop involved in the weekend horror – will not be permitted.

A spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) also said that all Hawker Hunter aircraft had been grounded until further notice.

“However, we have a two day airshow to put on with around 200,000 people expected to turn up and that has to be our primary focus at this time, along with the safety of those taking part and watching”.

The family of the 76-year-old, who lived in Brighton, said: “Maurice is a well-respected and loved father and husband“.

The final death toll in the Shoreham air disaster is “increasingly likely” to be set at 11, police have said. Police issued a statement at the request of his family expressing their devastation and sadness for the loss of life. “And he flew straight into the ground either on or very close to the A27, which runs past the airport”.

It is not known why the pilot, said to be an experienced former member of the Royal Air Force, lost control of the craft.

AIR displays have been cancelled at Chris Evans’ CarFest South event following new regulations introduced in the wake of the Shoreham disaster.

Ferocious blast John Turner, chairman of the British Air Display Association, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the crash was “absolutely tragic” but said authorities should make sure they understood why it occurred before changing regulations.

“Along with colleagues from the Air Accident Investigation Branch, we have removed the jet, which will be transported to Farnborough for examination, and then we will remove all of the vehicles and other debris from the scene”. It was not immediately clear whether Hill used his ejector seat, although footage appeared to show that he did not deploy it before impact.
