Be interesting to see footage prior to this,
had one pause though the brief footage and it looks like the disk is tilted back like the pilot is trying to pull up, loss of power ?...

I'll be the first.
Ag / torque into wind low level ?
Or are we taking the pilot's word for it.

Maybe a pitch change in the audio? Due to something (man I wish the'd fix that :D ) letting go?
(And now entering armchair advisor mode) Wouldn't the nice, level, hard, directly in front of you runway have been a better place to "try" not to write off the machine on?
