Captain Renaud Ecalle: Fighter pilot and world champion aerobatic flyer

The French Air Force captain Renaud Écalle was the reigning world aerobatic champion, a title he won with a stunning display of sky ballet in his German-built Extra 330C aircraft in the skies over Silverstone racing circuit in August last year. His stunts won him the nickname "the Extra-Terrestrial" among fellow pilots in France's Équipe de Voltige, one of the world's oldest and most successful aerobatic teams. As fate would have it, the 29-year-old Écalle was not doing daredevil rolls or loops but simply heading home in his small plane on Sunday with his wife and two infant children when it crashed in torrential rain, fog and 50mph gusts of wind, killing all four.

Cultural Life: Gillian Wearing, artist

Visual Arts: I saw a really great show of Wolfgang Tillmans at the Serpentine Gallery. I saw Wolfgang's first show at Maureen Paley back in 1993. It really wasn't like anything I had seen before; casual images pinned to the wall, with tenuous links between them. Wolfgang has continued being experimental without losing that lightness of touch, and always keeping that sense of humanity.

My parents were ... smilers and Quakers. My mum was a physiotherapist, and my dad's a silversmith and blacksmith; they met at a peace camp in Germany after the war. My mum's German and moved to the UK to be with my dad.

T in the Park, Balado, near Kinross

In T in the Park's 17th year, it was Eminem, making his only UK festival appearance of the year, who gave the three-day event its centrepiece. Despite taking to the stage around 40 minutes late, Marshall Mathers gave those who had paid his fee their money's worth, more or less. It felt like all 80,000 festival-goers were squeezed into a packed-to- the-burger-vans main arena on Saturday to see him perform a set that included hits like "The Real Slim Shady", "Stan", "Lose Yourself" and "The Way I Am", albeit some of them only in medley format, while the appearance of his mob-handed entourage D12 for a guest spot was welcome but – considering they played elsewhere on the bill –not a surprise.

Cultural Life: Russell Maliphant, choreographer

Music: I play music a lot while I'm working in the studio. It's often to give a special feeling or energy with movement. Recently, I've been listening to Astor Piazzolla pieces, played by a brilliant young violinist, Oscar Bohorquez. Before that I was listening to a lot of music by Eric Satie played by Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Dustin Gledhill, and new pieces by the composer Andy Cowton, who I have been working with for many years. Tom Waits (below) is always a favourite, as are Nick Cave, Barry Adamson and Muse. I recently choreographed for a video directed by Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones for the band UNKLE and have since been listening to a lot of their work, too.
