NEW: Police will keep searching for people

The pilot survived but was badly injured, police said

7 people died when the plane crashed on a road next to the airport near Shoreham in Sussex

CNN  — 

Police on Sunday will search for possible additional victims after a Cold War-era military jet that was part of an air show crashed on a busy highway in southeastern England.

At least 14 other people were injured.

The pilot was pulled from the wreckage and airlifted to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, where he remained critically injured, Derrick said.

“It is possible that there are still bodies at the scene, and it is important that our search is professional and thorough,” Derrick told reporters.

The jet was flying a loop at the Shoreham Airshow when it nosedived Saturday. The highway will remain closed as the search for other victims continues.

The show featured vintage military aircraft and was put on by the Royal Air Forces Association.

Shoreham Airshow organizers cancelled the Sunday session of the show following the accident.

“Shoreham Airshow will not be taking place tomorrow because of the serious nature of today’s incident,” the website said. “We would like to apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, but we hope the public will understand our decision.”

Authorities asked anybody with still or video images of the crash to contact them.

“Sussex Police and the Air Accidents Investigation Branch have asked that anyone with photographs or video footage that may help with their investigations should send their contact details to,” the airshow organizers said. “Do not send files, just contact details and information about the material you have.”

About 2,000 Hawker Hunter single-seat jets were built in the 1950s in England, the Netherlands and Belgium, according to IHS Jane’s Defence Industry. The plane is about 46 to 49 feet long, depending on the model, with a wingspan of 33 feet 8 inches.
