The M-346 is a trainer, doesn't it normally carry two crew members (but can easily be flown by just one)? I am happy that at least one of them got out.

From the color of the airframe wreckage in the linked article, plus the comments added to this photo, it looks like it was a company-owned test/demo airframe, rather than an operational aircraft, with one test pilot on board.
