I saw this a couple of days ago on one of my French news feeds. Looks like the pilot got the tail up too high or did something cause him to stamp on the brakes?

Looked a bit like soft ground to me. I know that BBMF Spitfires use the tarmac runway.

The Germans  gave up breaking them, so the French have taken over  :'', the ground looks sound, so probably a dab on the starboard brake with the propeller not helping, made it tip over,,,  :study:

It really looks to me as if the starboard wheel dug in to soft ground.

The starboard wheel does seem to dig in - but the way that I see it, the tail had started to rise before the starboard wheel started to throw up soil.

that would happen if (for instance) the wheel dropped in to a rabbit hole or mole hill, the tail would instantly go up. It looks suspiciously like moles to me, having suffered from the little buggers on our camping patch.

The report at the time this happened was that it took place at a local flying club's fly in. The ground was reported as being wet and soft so a wheel may have dug in. As it was not a show but a fly in there were no emergency services present which is why the onlookers lifted the plane to get the pilot out, supposedly the emergency sevices arrived 10 minutes after the accident.

 Yes an old German Luftwaffe pilot could have been the 'Mole',,,  :''
