Monmouthshire fatal accident

This crash happened on Sunday:

An earlier eye-witness report indicated it might have been a motor glider.

It was a Grob G109B owned by one the chaps on board. He also owned a Discus glider which gives me the feeling of an experienced pilot. Will have to wait for the AAIB report to se what went wrong here.
