Air Accidents and Incidents

RE: Tragedy at Shoreham Airshow

The air display was a vanity driven (showing off) event, not necessary and not regulated in the same way as commercial aircraft operations, I would say that the aircraft owner and the pilot are entirely responsible for the deaths and damage caused by their aircraft to persons not attending the event.

Accident or not, it wouldn't have happened if the aircraft wasn't performing unneccesary manouvres for the sole purpose of showng off.

Such displays have to be analysed turn by turn before they can get approval to go ahead. Surely one of the failure scenarios would have included the very unlikely event that an aircraft would crash into a busy road.
If that possibillity exists, how can approval be given?
