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.
