Amiens Accident 9th May

... Or more accurately at the small airport to the east of Amiens at Albert.

According to the French authorities G-OVSI.

Eyewitnesses at the local flying club mention (amongst other things) a strong crosswind - report below in French.

Good news is the pilot escaped with head injuries, was transported to hospital by air ambulance.

Is there any further news? I suspect I know the pilot but have no corroboration that he was the pilot of that aircraft on the day.
