A few years ago a C152 got caught in electricity wires in Seattle, with no injuries to the sole occupant. The pilot involved died in a plane crash a few years later.

What aircraft type is it? 3 axis microlight? Nose wheel knocked off?
Flaps seem to have been down.

EGPE, United Kingdom

Looks like a Tecnam P92 UL to me

Private field, Mallorca, Spain

The bigger question is what was he doing flying so close the ground! Must have been a very violent impact with the cables. Looks like he hit the first cable, which sheared off his nosewheel, then the plane rotated violently around its horizontal axis and it impacted the second cable just before the empennage. You can the see the tail wrapped around the cable.

AFAIK, there is no airfield or airstrip in the vicinity of the mentioned locality.
