Really Sad news indeed such a lovely character will definitely be missed on the airwaves in Plett and Knysna.
Rip.
My parents live near the airport and said that around the time the weather changed fast and the wind suddenly started gusting. Not nice in a motor glider :(

Condolences to all the family and friends of both the deceased.

I did not know Stu but given what I have read regarding his considerable experience I must admit that it scares me that something like this happens to such a highly experienced pilot.
