Well there was another crash today !Whilst it's devastating when accidents happen, to ban airshows is a pointless knee jerk reaction.
Think you have missed the point !Agree with Andy. Make them safer but don't ban them otherwise you might as well ban anything that presents any risk if things go wrong
A bit harsh there trev. As he says those killed weren't attending the show so didn't sign up to the risk. No need for name calling. It's clearly an emotive subject.Theskycankill - intersting username, here for car related stuff or just to post tosh like this thread?
This forum seems to attract all kinds of pondlife and complete bellends nowadays.
DO NOT go to any car shows or race events, you MAY be killed.
It was an accident, tragic, possibly avoidable but still, an accident.
Knee jerk reactions is what finishes events people love off.
Possibly the main reason that its held at Shoreham Airport is a financial one. Bournemouth and Eastbourne airshows are funded, at least in part, by their councils and its free to view for spectators. Shoreham airshows proceeds (I believe) go to the RAF Association charity so obviously they would lose out if the event was moved.Why can't they do the same as Bournemouth, or Eastbourne. Take off, head out over the sea and perform the manoeuvres. Will it still be dangerous? yes, but the risk to spectators and bystanders is greatly reduced.
