Final Shoreham air crash findings to be published

The final safety report into the Shoreham air crash which killed eleven men on 22nd August 2015 is to be published next week.

A Hawker Hunter jet crashed on to the A27 in West Sussex during the Shoreham Airshow.

The jet failed to pull out of a loop-the-loop stunt.

The long-awaited findings, to be published on 3rd March, by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch are likely to have an impact on future air shows.
