Vintage aircraft on airshows significantly restricted

The question is if the vintage airplane (in this case the Hawker Hunter T7) is the cause of this accident. Aviation regulator CAA has already taken measures without knowing the cause of this tragedy. It is indeed normal that after disasters with aircraft the type of aircraft involved is grounded. But simply saying that vintage aircraft are restricted ??

Below some examples simular to the Shoreham incident:

Were these F-18’s, Mirage 2000’s, SU 30 grounded? Were these vintage aircraft? No, it could happen to any aircraft on any time.

This is te statement of CAA:

Aviation regulator the CAA has announced that flying displays over land by vintage jet aircraft will be significantly restricted until former notice, and that no further flights are to be made by Hawker Hunter aircraft for a temporary period of time. In a statement, the CAA said:

The thoughts of everyone at the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) remain with all of those affected by the tragic accident at the Shoreham Air Show on Saturday 22 August.

Following the accident we immediately began an urgent review and have, today, announced a series of immediate restrictions and changes to UK civil air displays.

As a precaution, on Saturday 22 August we took steps to ensure no further flights were made by Hawker Hunter aircraft – this temporary restriction remains in place.

Flying displays over land by vintage jet aircraft will be significantly restricted until further notice. They will be limited to flypasts, which means ‘high energy’ aerobatics will not be permitted.

The CAA will conduct additional risk assessments on all forthcoming civil air displays to establish if additional measures should be introduced.

We commenced a full review of civil air display safety yesterday and held an initial meeting this morning.

The safety standards that must be met by all major civil air displays in the UK are among the very highest in the world and are regularly reviewed. All air display arrangements, including the pilots and aircraft, must meet rigorous safety requirements. Individual display pilots are only granted approval following a thorough test of their abilities.

The CAA will continue to offer every assistance to the Air Accidents Investigation Branch as it seeks to establish the cause of the accident. The CAA will also act promptly in response to any emerging indications from the AAIB’s investigation
