Witnesses have reported that the pilot has taken off and landed throughout the day. At one point, a flight in a westerly direction and reached about 30-40 feet up, but then heeled it a little to the left. There are indications that the engine cut out and the plane plunged almost vertically down.
The 12-Rans aircraft struck the ground with his nose down. The pilot, who was sitting behind a thin plexiglass window, was killed instantly, police said.
The pilot was alone in the plane and was by all accounts dead on the spot. Mid and West Jutland Police would not disclose details about the deceased because the relatives have not yet been informed.
