Electrical Light Plane down in NL

Yesterday, a small private airplane (electrical) said to be a Pipistrel Electra came down in the north of the Netherlands at Onstwedde (Groningen).
After the crash, plane came in fire. The only occupant, a 55 year old Dutch man, died in this accident.
Causes will be investigated, as said the local Police.
This is, beside the tragic death of the pilot, bad news for the Pipistrel airplane builders. Just after their first arrival in the Benelux with open days and presentation of their electrical light planes, we will have to wait for confirmation of the causes.
