We were on the beach at Bognor waiting for the Vulcan to come along the coast from Bournemouth on the same day. We saw her come over, then circle round and move to Shoreham where she could be seen doing a slow flyby before returning towards us with a Spitfire flying in echelon. It was at that point my mate phoned me and told me about the crash. we could see the smoke from the beach. I went along there a day later and was shown the makeshift exit they'd had to clear for the cars to get through the south access tunnel, however the big RV's etc couldn't fit through it and were stuck there, as were several aircraft that couldn't take off due to the runway being closed. The death toll was worse than it should have been as right by the airport entrance is/was a big sign saying "No Parking or Waiting, Aircraft Operation area" people kept coming up to and in fact climbing onto the sign. Police moved them off several times but they came back. The Hunter took the sign out! It was a right mess.
A few I took from the beach as the Vulcan and Spit came past.
