BBC updated report.

"A 65-year-old man from Balls Cross, near Petworth in West Sussex, and a 58-year-old man from Gosport in Hampshire died, a Sussex Police spokesman said."

"
A pilot who had taken off from Goodwood Airfield shortly before the crash said he believed the plane had taken off between about 16:20 and 16:30. He said: "Shortly after I took off another plane took off. Other air traffic was told not to enter the airport air traffic zone. I could see black smoke reaching 100ft (30m) at the other side of the runway just outside the bounds of the airfield itself."

Goodwood closed temporarily

The airfield is closed until noon tomorrow (Friday 2nd). AAIB don't want any overflying of the crash site, which is close to the boundary. Reportedly the crash vehicles need time to replenish, too.

This aircraft has just gone through a Change of Ownership on 23-Jun-2021 so it was probably the new owner.

The quote in post #3 would suggest that one of the fatalities was the current owner.

It's surprising that there were no eye witnesses, it's a reasonably busy area
