An investigation into the Red Arrows mid-air collision has revealed pilot Flight Lieutenant Kirsty Moore's make-up bag was open in her cockpit.
Moore caused controversy when she joined the elite squadron earlier this year and turned up for her first flight in a mini skirt crop top and stilettos.
Squadron Leader Dave Manning said 'There was a bit of joking about it. Kirsty was asked to change into something more suitable and asked if 'flatties' or her Ugg boots would be alright.
'But on the other hand we have always made allowances for her.
'She has yet to learn how to taxi the Hawk jet, and usually gets out of the cockpit at the end of the runway and asks someone else to park it for her.
'Kirsty also doesn't like to wear a helmet on Thursday afternoons, which is when she gets her hair done.'
Manning added: 'She is also not very good with technical terms - for example she calls the jet exhaust ''the place where all the hot air whizzes out.'
The Red Arrows are considering adding a disabled person to the squadron to carry on the tradition of politically correct tokenism.
'But we have had a little trouble modifying the Hawk jet to get a wheelchair into the cockpit,' said Manning.
'We are thinking of making a large glider so the disabled person can be tugged around by one of able bodied pilots.'
