Air Accidents and Incidents

RE: Tragedy at Shoreham Airshow

Quite true Mike, but my points were that there was no point to the activity of the crashed jet and it was given special permission to carry out the pointless aerobatics in the vicinity of a busy road.
It took off, did things that weren't necessary solely for the amusement of a crowd and then crashed into the ground.
Under the rules of air displays the crowd on the ground are given special consideration when choreographing the display to reduce or eliminate the risk of an aircraft hitting them.
I want to know why the same consideration doesn't appear to have been given to the people on the highway.

Most aircraft flights are carried out in a stable horizontal manner with the intention of moving the aircraft and contents safely to a distant destination.
As far as I know, even the worst motor racing disaster didn't involve killing people a mile away from the circuit.
