A plane in the British Royal Air Force's Red Arrows aerobatic display team has been involved in an unspecified incident on Tuesday, the Ministry of Defence said on Tuesday, just months after one of the team's aircraft crashed killing the pilot.

We can confirm that there has been an incident involving a Red Arrows Hawk at Scampton, a MoD spokesman said, referring to the Lincolnshire RAF base in eastern England which is home to the squadron.

He gave no further details about what had happened, or if there were any casualties.

Lincolnshire police said they had been alerted at 11.18 a.m. and an air ambulance had attended the scene. The incident was ongoing, a spokesman said.

In August, Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging, 33, crashed after performing at the Bournemouth Air Festival on the southern coast of England.

The display team was formed in 1965 and has performed more than 4,000 displays in 52 countries.
