A Bede BD-5J single-seater microjet of the Red Bull Flying Bulls display team has crashed during an attempted forced landing, killing the pilot, Guido Gehrmann.

Red Bull says: "It is with great sadness that we confirm the death of our close friend of many years, Guido Gehrmann. Guido was on his way back from an event in [the] Tyrol, flying a BEDE-5 of the Flying Bulls.

"When problems occurred with the engine, Guido attempted an emergency landing, but this ended in tragedy."

The Flying Bulls are based at Salzburg, Austria.
