looks like the pilot ejected!
No history data? Gee, I wonder why!?! It is an awesome pic. Are there others, either before or after this one? Thanks for sharing!!
I have answered my own question. While there are at least 5, maybe more pictures of this accident. There is one where it is in normal flight, and may not be from the actual accident flight, but is nice to see what it was like before things went so very bad. Then there are 4 pictures showing the firing of the canopy, then one of the pilot being shot out of the cockpit in his ejection seat, then one where you can see the pilots feet on the left side of the image and the plane now free of its canopy, pilot and seat, and this one when it starts its attempt to drill to China. There may be more, but if you put the 5 in order, it is just incredible!!! Thank you to who ever did this!!!

Jim, are you sure about the timeand place?Tail painted to commemorate Navy 100. While still serving, and in 2010, I never had the chance to see this aircraft fly. Even for the international fleet review on June 12, 2010. I was lead to believe this CF-188 (Canadian F-18A) crashed at the Shearwater airshow sometime the month before.
Any info?
Anybody know how fast this jet was traveling at the time of impact?
Michael Gower
The aircraft was in slow flight, at an extreme AOA. See the youTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxMLkEYgT78

It would have being amazing to post the entire accident photoes sequence. For sure whoever took the pictures have them. Fantastic anyhow. Brazil on line.

Wow....now that's one expensive lawn dart.
Has this pilot had any training on how to fly. This crash can only be accomplished by an idiot.

New landing technique? Where's a valet when you need one.

Correction.. this wasn't a $200M aircraft.. try closer to $60M.
I like Brian Luvisi's "lawn dart" quip the best!
Amazing shot! Right place, Right time.
