Lieutenant Commander Christopher Gotke was at the controls of the historic fighter plane when the engine lost power during an aerobatic sequence as part of a historic flight display.

The father-of-two, originally from Kent but now stationed in Yeovilton, Somerset, joked that his wife Georgia and daughters were only third on his list of calls after the incident.
He said: ‘The first people I called were the people who look after the aircraft, to tell them I was now looking at a very sad aeroplane on the side of the runway.
