Way to screw up there. IT'S NOT TOP GUN BUDDY. Glad the co-pilot made it through. Unfortunate for the two who didn't survive.

You can't just hit a button and eject because you realised you screwed up...

Accident is still under investigation, however I'm guessing he was buzzing his drag strip buddies. (I'd guess it wasn't the first time - but it was the last!!)

Unbelievably STUPID move. This guy killed a medic! For what? I am very happy that the co-pilot survived....with MINOR injuries!

Holy Flug, the pilot really flugged up there (or is it flugged down?). Don't they teach the Bold pilots, old pilots, but no old bold ones in Iceland? Well the pilots on ice now but sadly so are his innocent passengers.

Lucky it crashed in a place with people to pull him out. Did look like he was hot dogging it a bit. From the sound it dont seem to be full power?

I can't believe the copilot made it. That was a helluva crash. And a drag race in Iceland.....Really! Nice 55 chevy. I thought they only had crap like Volvos there. Go figure.
