Aircraft crash video

What happens in this video ?

During an aerobatic display at Wanaka, New Zealand, on 3 April 1994 this De Havilland Chipmunk collided with the ground killing the pilot. Probable causes are a misjudgement of loss of height and/or a mistaken impression regarding the aircraft height above ground prior to manoeuvre commencement.
