More victims feared in UK airshow crash

<p>British police have warned more victims could emerge from the Shoreham airshow crash once the wreckage of the plane is lifted from the road where it exploded.</p> <p>So far 11 people are thought to have died. </p> <p>The plane which was attempting a loop during an aerial display as part of a two-day airshow, crashed onto the A27 – a busy dual carriageway in southern England – on Saturday. The pilot, who is also a British Airways captain, survived but is critically injured in hospital.</p> <p>A crane is expected to lift the wreckage of the aircraft ( a Hawker Hunter fighter) later today. That is when police fear more bodies may be discovered. </p> <p>It’s unclear what caused the accident. Witnesses have described the plane has flying too low for the manoevre, but aviation experts have suggested the engine may have cut out.</p> <p>Either way the result is the worst British airshow disaster in living memory.</p>
