A really bad one, the police had asked the crowd to wait a while because the travel was so bad.

Terrible thing Lynne and to think that the dead and injured were not even at the airshow, they were just driving past.

I see the examiners say the plane was in good order
perhaps the crash was down to pilot error

If it was pilot error,and he get's over his injuries he'll have that on his conscience for the rest of his life.

I don't think he will ever get over it whether it was directly his fault or not.
When these things happen the survivors often feel guilty for surviving, he will surely feel much worse than that, being the sole cause of all those innocent and unrelated deaths.

IF it was pilot error would he be in line for a prosecution. if he was a car driver causing so many deaths ha almost certainly would. I understand feeling sympathy for this man but do the relatives of the casualties feel that way I wonder?
