And it is typical that the news will present a poll like this without any background information. Have they explained the rules which are strictly enforced at U.S. and U.K. shows? (I will make the assumption that most European shows have roughly the same safety standards....) Did the news look into the safety standards which may or may not have been in place at the Ukraine show?
No wonder we have people who are clueless making decisions, reacting not on knowledge but on gut emotion. Sigh.

Oh like who cares what CNN has to say about it. This is just a trigger-happy reaction. Airshows will continue to be a part of the world as long as theres an atmosphere. Typical CNN. May I suggest that we improve safety standards in airshows universally as opposed to just banning them all?
