Daily Mail: British photographer saved US fighter pilot by raising the alarm after spotting a shower of sparks from the back of the pilot's F-15E 

* Ian Simpson, 56, saw sparks shooting from fighter jet while taking photographs 

* Briton quickly phoned RAF Lakenheath base, in Suffolk, before pilot landed jet 

 * Brit motivated to act after death of other US pilot who crashed into the North Sea 

A quick-thinking British photographer has been honoured by a US military pilot whose life he potentially saved after warning him that his engine was faulty - after he had already taken off. 

Ian Simpson, 56, happened to be taking photos of an F-15E Strike Eagle fighter jet, piloted by US Air Force Major Grant Thompson, when he noticed sparks flying from its rear. 

While listening to flight control traffic at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk on Tuesday, Mr Simpson and other aviation enthusiasts realised the pilot had no idea there was a problem with the aircraft.

Yeah and Hunter Biden's art sells for 0.4 million a pop and you're not allowed to find out who and if you ask questions the demonic left laughs

They don't care he's a drug who together with his dad got millions loaned from China and without interest. And they don't care that Joe got kickbacks and they don't care that Biden's own daughter in her diary talks about how much showering with her dad damaged her and so on

Those who only seek power don't care
To them this is all just a game of power and everything goes it doesn't matter as long as their team wins

And they don't want to listen.. they want to crush you because they've been programmed with lies by CNN, from Don Lemon to Van Jones

And then, for instigating race tensions based on lies and getting a police officer covid based on lies, Jeff Bezos donates 100 million to one of the biggest race investigators, Van Jones. It's sick. It's wrong. And it teaches everyone the wrong lessons.

But yeah, off topic agreed
