AIUI he was flying an experimental plane to the US - which I presume means it was full of fuel when it crashed.

I just wonder how an experimental aircraft was allowed to fly over a populated area.....

Cheers,

Experimental / homebuilt aircraft fly over populated areas in the U.S. all the time - after an initial period of a certain number of hours where they can't venture too far from their home base.

Remember, professionals build the Titanic, amateurs built the Ark.
