According to their own website, the Broncoteam has 2 other aircaft, including 99+18/G-ONAA that was reflown on 26 May 2012 after 20 years in the museum at Schwenningen; it has been transferred (by air) to Wevelgem for final restoration since. If I'm not mistaken the other one is 99+26/G-BZGL.

I got a picture from the parking lot before being told to leave by the controller in the tower.

The wreck is very close to the tower and far from the runway, so it probably did happen during aerobatics [edit: which does not imply pilot error of course, my apologies for a nitwit remark]

A few years ago they flew with the 99+24, see the show at Leeuwarden.

Were that the same persons? I thought that one was from France (based at Montelimar)?

Aviodromefriend is right. Different organisation, different plane, (named Ville de Regensburg), different people. No connection other than that they operate(d) the same aircraft. Haven' t seen that one around for a while; wonder if it's still operational.
