Narrative:
A Schempp-Hirth Discus bT powered glider crashed onto the roof of a school-building at Ludwigshafen Edigheim on Monday the 28th of May. It is unknown why the glider crashed into the school.

The pilot, who was sole onboard, was killed in the accident.

Note:
Many press sources reported a Discus "10 TC" as type of the powered glider that crashed. It was confirmed later at the SSV Ludwigshafen website that it was a Schempp-Hirth Discus bT.

Possible candidate is D-KINZ (c/n 18/304) but it's just an assumption and NOT confirmed !
