Thanks sniffer, you can see that what was suppose to be another barrel-roll turned into some kind of Split-s into the ground :(

Full display - Here You can watch (very good quality) how many time between he disappeared behind trees and crash...

Tribute... - very nice compose of display and music and colours. Look at 3:04 on clouds - You see that face? Yeah, I know - it's metaphysics or sth like that but very interesting thing! With friend we called him: "Lord of the life and death"

R.I.P.

Edit: Forget to put this photo:

Look - at this moment on HSI he had 'blue' field so I think they believes in afterburner which in fact started to working... but probably 1-2 seconds too late...

Some guys on polish forums made more saturation (or less?) and they've got sth like this (maybe it's only clouds):

When he disappear and recover some thrust he 'fight' about 10 seconds... Witness said that he made some left turn about 25 degrees where he missed house but at so little power this turn pull him down on left wing... They talks about eletric lines and other says that plane just jump over the house (after touching ground he goes up o_O) I wonder what really happens behind trees... We've got only rumours and few videos... Waiting for some report.

It's difficult to be sure, but from that last video you have posted Sniffer, it looks like the aircraft was approaching the stall, and the left wing stalled first... wing drop and then into the ground :(

RIP
