    Dear Energy Reporters team,

    we would like to point out to you, that the statement “Last summer, Siemens’ electric prototype caught fire before crashing and killing both occupants” in your article is faulty.

    As video recordings prove, the plane caught fire only after it touched the ground. You can find more details on the investigations, which in the meantime have been closed, here: http://www.kbsz.hu/j25/dokumentumok/2018_322_4%20Prereport.pdf

    While the aircraft was powered by an electric drive system provided by Siemens, it was operated by Magnus Aircraft.

    Just thought we would flag this up in case you would like to correct it in your article.

    Best regards,
    Julia
