“There have been several casualties, but we have no further information on these at the moment,” Sussex Police said in a statement.

South East Coast Ambulance Service said all the victims died at the scene, BBC reported adding that the plane crashed on the nearby A27 in West Sussex.

Eyewitnesses said the plane was performing a loop but did not complete the manoeuvre and crashed.

Stephen Jones, who saw the crash, said: “The aeroplane involved is a Hawker Hunter T mark 7. And he’d just begun his flying display.

“He’d gone up into a loop and as he was coming out of the loop I just thought, you’re too low, you’re too low, pull up.

“And he flew straight into the ground either on or very close to the A27, which runs past the airport.”
