Narrative:
The pilot left the aircraft unattended with engine idling and brakes set in order to remove a fence from runway. The aircraft began rolling, then gathering speed quickly. Being unable to re-enter the cockpit as the canopy was closed, the pilot hung on to the tail before being flung off. The aircraft then ran down an embankment before hitting a tree and farm machinery.
