I believe 10 Red Arrow pilots have been killed in the teams 50 year history, with about the same number of non fatal crashes, yet they were allowed to continue.

Now they are being neutered by the CAA following an unrelated accident, to a plane that had been flying 10 years before they were even formed.

Isn't the Dartmouth REGATTA over water anyway?

If they have gone from vintage jets to all jets in a few days, how long until it's all aircraft? The ONLY way to guarantee no one will ever be killed at an airshow, is to not have airshows.

It all smacks of a bureaucratic decision to be seen to do something. with obvious parallels to local councils slapping low speed limits onto sensible drivers following one drunk driver crashing.
