Aviation fans were looking forward to their first glimpse of the Sea Vixen in Eastbourne yesterday (14 August).

They did get to see her, albeit briefly, as her Airbourne debut was cut short, after Commander Simon Hargreaves of the Royal Navy detected a flap issue with the aircraft.

He had it visually checked by the Display Director, but as a precaution, he decided to return to RNAS Yeovilton, where he landed safely.

Engineers are expected to give the Sea Vixen a full inspection.
