I agree.. There was one few years past that crashed into a house miles away from the air field. But, in regards to national news, I never remember air show crashes making national news, so perhaps thats part of the thought process.

Valid question no doubt.
Could be bad fuel?
Does anyone know of the backgrounds of the pilots?
Of the aviation crews?
Where are the planes serviced?
It is curious .

Actually, that is why always refused to take my kids to one of those air shows. Kind of like setting up lawn chairs on the side of the turnpike. My wife thought I was nuts, but for as long as I can remember hardly a year goes by that there isn't a crash at one air show or another.
You should try and live little dangerously!!
Denying your children the delights of an air show because once in a while a crash MAY happen?
Your choice of course, but I have been taking my family to Fairford airshow in the U.K for the last eight years and NO accidents have occured.
To have the opportunity to see some magnificent aircraft up close is a treat. Seriously, unless you are actually underneath the flying displays it is very unlikely any harm will come to you and yours.
