Looks like the guy ejected just before impact - you can see a glimpse of the parachute just before the end of the last scene.

Here's another one, at an airshow in Eastern Asia where the pilot clearly overstressed the wings, a bit horrific, it looks like either a PC or maybe a Cessna 206???

Nasty video. Yeah, turns out it was Partenavia P68. Excuse me while I rant for 4 seconds. But what kind of IDIOT would start flying these manouvers in an aircraft not approved for aerobatics. How irresponsible do you have to get. This kind of leads back to that guy in the states a number of years back who killed both himself and his brother in law in a seneca ( or some light piper twin ) while doing a barrell roll before he sold it. It just bugs me why people do things like that. If you want to go and play around with aerobatics, go hire yourself an appropriate aircraft. Or at least, dont involve anyone else in the mess.

El ranto complete.

Very true, I agree, even without suitable ratings, you can have plenty of fun in lower range aerobatic craft, for virtually the same cost as renting a middle range single engined craft.

But my immediate thoughs were similar, this guy didn't have a clue what he was really doing, that type of craft is clearly not built, even looking at it visually, for such manovers.

Thank God for the authorities that be in Ireland, that they atleast stop that from happening...
