Amazing Escape

A Canadian pilot miraculously ejected moments before his fighter jet crashed this week. Captain Brian Bews was flying a CF-18 Hornet in preparation for the Alberta International Airshow. When he attempted a low-speed, low-altitude pass, the plane veered violently. Bews ejected just before the plane smashed into the runway.

Bews suffered only fractures in three vertebrae, which will force him into a back brace for a few months. Investigators are looking into the cause of the crash.

    WOW! He was lucky not many people live in airshow crases. For example the Russian bomber that crased and the commercial airliner.
    WOW! He will never forget that!!!

    that must have been an intense situation. Since it was low altitude, he was really lucky he survived
