Such a very sad event, Pilot killed and a beautiful aircraft destroyed.
Thoughts are with his family and the spectators who witnessed this terrible accident.
🙏🙏🙏🕯🕯🕯

Re: Hurricane Mk.IV OO-HUR crashed near Cheb

It is always sad to see a "brother" flyer passing away on a flying accident.
I saw the video, in my humble opinion he was a bit low to try aerobatics...no room to recover...seems to have stalled too when levelling. Sad loss in Human aspects and material aspects.
I do ask myself, specially regarding those flyers that fly those WW2 birds...why they do not only fly straight and level at low level and let the aerobatics for a BOX some 5,000 feet AGL (at least)?
In some of those WW2 birds Flight Manuals it is often recorded that "Aerobatics" should NOT be performed below 5 or 10,000 feet! This was the recommendation for the WW2 pilots.
Anyway...always sad to see a brother flyer passing away...
