Fatal accident in Ireland 14/6/2019

Irish news reports 2 killed in a BRM NG5, with a pic showing apparently a clean fuselage break behind the wings, with the empenage looking undamaged. Cockpit canopy also looks o.k. www.rte.ie
The type said to be metal, and not homebuild, when Googled. Unusual accident damage.

Damage apart from the tail breaking off at a transport/ construction joint looks utterly benign. Must have been a flat vertical impact?

One of the pilots was a friend of mine. A very experienced Instructor. Very familiar with spins in various aircraft.
It looks like a flat spin and having read the other thread about previous accidents you have to wonder if there's a problem with the type.

Hmm!. With two spin accidents in Australia, now this one plus the one in Europe with the test pilot this is not a good look for the type.

When one looks at the design of the tail plane one can see that the airflow in a spin might well have the rudder blanked off to reduce or stop the air flow needed for recovery.

Do I understand that the Australian CASA is working with the local CAA for an exchange of information re the spin handling of the Bristell?
