Just hope they weren't friends from my homefield... but that is normally closed on Mondays.

[[edit: according to https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=206057 , it would be OO-JKM, a six-seater Beechcraft based at Kortrijk-Wevelgem. RIP]]

Some sources on twitter say that the aircraft was flying at low altitude and hit high-voltage cables ...

Wreckage to be transported to Brasschaat (EBBT airfield?) for further analysis. Why to Brasschaat, of all places?
