An RAF engineer sadly killed when a Red Arrows jet crashed on Tuesday March 20th has been named as Jonathan Bayliss from Dartford. All at The Sandbag Times wish to express their utmost respect and sincere condolences to all family and friends of Jonathan at this difficult time.
Colleagues paid tribute to Corporal Bayliss, who was 41.
He was part of the Red Arrows’ group of travelling support engineers, known as the “Circus”.
Sergeant Will Allen, leader of the travelling engineers, said: “Jon had the ability to motivate and inspire a team and those around him – no matter the rank, role or person.
“He was so proud to have been chosen to join the Circus team for 2018 and had fulfilled a schoolboy dream.
“Jon had a big a presence on the squadron and with his wide, beaming smile, and dry humour, could lighten up any dull moment or lift spirits when needed.
“Both inside and outside of work, he was a generous, kind and caring man who could also always be relied upon.”
