Airshows partly demonstrate the destructive power of aircrafts. I can't understand why anyone would want to even view them! It's tptb that are responsible for their creation and now seem to want to showcase their weapons of destruction for some reason. The general public probably don't even want to think about the destructive powers they were designed for and all the deaths they might have caused.
