Reports on Twitter say that he got up and walked away from it so sounds like he's OK.

We were very lucky with the weather down at Eastbourne today, no rain at all during the flying display - despite the forecast and a large downpour about half an hour afterwards. So it could have been a lot worse. Only the BBMF and Sea Fury didn't make it, but think everything else that was down to fly made it. All nice routines, would have been nice to have had another low pass from the Mustang from the pier end, but other than that no real complaints. This may surprise some, but display I enjoyed the most was actually the Wingwalkers, don't know if just the different angle or whatever, but really enjoyed their display. Was good to see the Breitling team again today and Typhoon routine was also very good and needed that fast jet to give the show something different, compared to yesterday and the rest of the acts. Seemed a lot less people around than normal on the pier, guessing a combination of the Red Arrows' absence and the weather forecast, but was much easier getting out of the town too. Overall, two very enjoyable days.

Thanks for the list, didn't expect the Typhoon to be so early, I better head over a bit sooner.
