This one still has legs, put the lawyers on standby for more lucrative work
Leslye Polito, from Worthing, whose 23-year-old son Daniele was among the victims, said: "Like with all the other families, we want answers.

"I'm interested to know what the conclusions are in the report and to see if there is any new information.

The Rev Terry Stratford, associate priest of St Mary de Haura Church in Shoreham, where some of the victims' families gathered before the first anniversary of the disaster, said the AAIB report will not provide final closure...."This report will be a further stage reached for the families, but not the culmination.".
James Healy-Pratt, head of aviation and travel at Stewarts Law, said [speaking on behalf of the families]: "This AAIB final report is a critical step on the journey to the truth for the families left bereaved by the Shoreham air crash.

"The families understand there will be unanswered questions after the AAIB report, that are better answered through the coroner's investigation and inquest, and potentially the criminal investigation by Sussex Police.

"Their journey to the truth is long, but they are determined that no stone should be left unturned, so that lessons can be learned and appropriate actions taken."
Sounds expensive.
The families and friends of the Shoreham disaster victims have reacted angrily to the findings of the final report by air accident investigators.

The parents of Matthew Grimstone [Sue and Phil Grimstrone] criticised the Civil Aviation Authority and the airshow organisers, saying they "have got much to answer for" in relation to the tragedy that claimed 11 lives.

Mr [Jacob] Schilt's mother Caroline said though she was happy with the AAIB's "very comprehensive and factual" investigation after a "huge amount of work".
"But there are still questions and they are ones for the coroner," she said

Nino Vydeenaden, 22, a friend of victim Matt Jones, 24, said: "It's going to anger a lot of people. If the pilot had not had formal training to stop what he was doing, then he shouldn't have done it.

"I think it's ridiculous. I know the AAIB doesn't want to point the finger at anyone, but if he had not had formal training to stop that manoeuvre then he shouldn't have flown the plane.

"The pilot is going to have to live with that. And now the families are going to be thinking that it could have been prevented. People are going to be furious."
All that anger and venom directed at Andy Hillz Hill....
