Fighter Jet Pilot Narrowly Escapes Death Using Ejection Seat, Parachute
The above photo was taken moments before Captain Brian Bews's CF-18 fighter jet crashed to the ground during a practice flight today. Yep, his ejection seat really worked, as did his parachute. Check out the after photo after the jump….
According to Gizmodo:
The practice flight took place at Lethbridge County Airport and was apparently in preparation for the weekend airshow in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. There are no details as to exactly why the jet fighter went down. We do know that Captain Bews was taken to the hospital for injury treatment.
