Singapore aborted a flight display at its international Singapore Airshow on Thursday 4 Feb 2010 after a South Korean pilot steered his T-50 Golden Eagle jet too close to spectators. Spectators thought that it was a WOW factor but it was some error made. Safety is very carefully looked into at the airshow.
