Are ya sure he was ejecting? I'd like to think he was just getting some fresh air and not crashing that bada$$ F/A-18

laval bouchard
do u know if got out ok?
Daniel Howland
I remember seeing this on a video.. He made it out ok after a high alpha pass went bad. Talk about cheating death though!

You can tell from the fact that the smoke is just sitting there that this jet isn't making much headway and is stalled-out. Can't tell from the photo but my guess is that the F-18 is too low to recover and the pilot opted to check-out. Does anyone know what happened?
BTW Awesome photo!
Dannie Kemp
Glad the pilot got out okay but what a waste of money.
John Tyler
This means a LOSS of millions. The pilot is saved but looks like the plane is totaled. Never before photoed, AWESOME camera work.
