Should Airshows Be Banned?

The Shoreham Air Crash is more than just a tragic accident, it's a crime. At least, morally it should be. If a person, of their own accord, attends an event where there is an element of danger and gets killed in an accident at the event then that person has tacitly beforehand accepted the possibility of such an outcome. I am not one of those people who would ban everything that is dangerous. God gave us free will. I think we should respect that and not treat everyone like babies. However, if you are not at the event you have every right to expect to remain unaffected by the event. If it is inherent in a particular type of event that such a risk cannot be ruled out completely then that type of event should be prohibited by law. We have the right to endanger our own lives for our own pleasure but we do not have the right to endanger the lives of others for our own pleasure.
