Not knocking the elderly - but was anyone else a bit disturbed that the race pilot involved in this serious accident was a 74 year old? Suspect

Intresting vid, About 7mins in you see the moment it all went pear shaped. Dosnt show the impact but shows the trim tab breaking off just after the plane nearly rolls onto its back.
