Red Arrows death

Unfortunate accident or the result of defence cuts?
The second Red Arrows death within three months occurs at RAF Scampton when the Hawk T1 trainer's ejector seat fired on the runway.

Normally, I'm of the watch and wait mind on this sort of thing, but given the criminal (and I do mean that literally) cuts the RAF has suffered, I want the Red Arrows' maintenance budget gone over with a fine tooth comb and if there's been any skimping, then I want to see prison sentences handed out–and as high up as possible.
