Amazingly pilot Mike Newman walked away from this crash with just a few injuries.

This is the moment when a stunt glider slammed into a runway ahead of 15,000 horrified fans at Shoreham air show. Astonishingly pilot Mike Newman, 35, crawled out of the wreckage of the high performance Swift S-1 aircraft after the cockpit broke up on impact. (Pics)


The former racing driver suffered three broken vertebrae in the accident, but doctors expect him to make a full recovery.
