Set against a beautiful backdrop on Bournemouth's sea-front is a remarkable statue. It is dedicated to Flt Lt Jon Egging, a Red Arrow pilot, who tragically died when his Hawk aeroplane crashed after displaying at the Bournemouth Air Festival on 20 August 2011. The Council decided to run a competition for schoolchildren to send in designs for the Memorial. The winning design was from pupils at Kinson Primary School. The sculpture stands five metres high and is made up of three stainless steel contrails covered in red, white and blue glass discs with three glass Red Arrow jets soaring into the sky. The sculpture is accompanied by a memorial plaque which reads: "Always follow your dreams. Blue skies."
