This is obviously not an engineering report. To say the cause of a crash is the win falling of is a little too simplistic. I doubt we'll ever know what happened as the pax were all in parachutes and not scheduled airline customers.

Agree. To provide an engineering cause at this early date lacks accident investigation discipline and professionalism.
All true, but some more detail could have been provided even on the day of or night of. I wasn't looking for a lot of conjecture. But maybe the year, make and model, weather conditions, you know simple basics the media would give in an SUV incident.

A little more info at :

The Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porter plane took off in partly cloudy conditions over the wooded and hilly area about 40 miles (60 kilometers) south of Brussels.

Nicolas Hormans of the Paraclub Namur, whose skydivers were among the victims, told RTL network that the plane was probably about 3 kilometers (2 miles) high when it suddenly went down. He said the nosedive would have thrown everyone aboard around with such force that they would not have been able to jump out and parachute to safety.
