Crash of prototype Integral R, France, 12 April 2022

I have just seen that the prototype Integral R crashed in Ariège, France, on 12 April 2022. Sadly both occupants lost their lives.
The Integral R is a specific aerobatic aircraft produced by Aura Aero. This is the prototype, F-WJMK. It had taken off from the airfield at Saint-Girons at 8.55am UTC and crashed 17 minutes later.
Very sad news. Condolences to families and friends.

In this news report it is stated that the safety parachute had been deployed, but that remains to be confirmed.
