There's another thread here about it, I don't remember seeing the video last night in that thread. A shame and very sad. Not sure why no safety harness, at that speed there is nothing you can do but hope it turns out OK. Sadly it didn't.

The accident has been talked about in other threads. Most are pulling the video out of respect for the families.

Sad accident. RIP Garth Tagge and Jim Melly. Prayers up for the families.

Damn. Prayers for the families left behind. Good argument for enclosed cockpits at those speeds.
