Replica (50% scale), obviously.

That was probably G-WULF, built by Mike Searle and I think owned by Alan Walker and Rod Dean for a while. This one was a much more recent build.

The accident aircraft appears to have been David Conway's WAR FW190 scale replica G-CCFW, based at Lower Upham Farm, Chiseldon, where the accident occurred:

I don't think such open symbolism would be allowed in Germany today.

A really sad incident, but I'm happy to see the pilot is OK.

I'm not so sure. He has a rather wooden expression on his face.

I don't think we've actually seen a post-accident photo of the pilot, but he probably wasn't very pleased.
