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

HOLY s..t !!!
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!
Terence Rucker
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.

a marvelous shot

Both engines are stalled out, the aircraft is in a full stall and no doubt defending rapidly. Only a really good ejection seat saved this pilot, although this one does work from a parked aircraft. Surviving is good, but ejections are all painful and leave long lasting injuries. Many pilots don't fly again for months, if ever, after ejecting!

That'll buff out.

The Aircraft was A CF-118 Hornet of the RCAF and according to Wikipedia, on 23 July 2010 A Cf-18 (#188738, Last 3 numbers visible on the starboard wing,) was practicing an airshow in Lethbridge Alberta, when one of the engines malfunctioned at 90 meters. The pilot RCAF Capt Brian Brews ejected safely with three damaged vertebrae. The Skyhawks Parachute Demonstration team of Canadian Army rescued him.

The plane did nose dive into the ground after the ejection. On impact it was 65 degrees nose down and banked 160 degrees to the right.

Talk about being at the right place at the right time to take this amazing picture! Shame for the loss of the CF18 Hornet but glad the pilot RCAF Captain Brian Brews survived the ejection. It was concluded to a sticky piston as the probable cause in the Alberta Air Show during practice in July, 2010. Wow!!

Having built F/A 18's many years ago and working that forward canopy assembly specifically, It's nice to see an actual release in action. To bad they lost the aircraft and hopefully the pilot kept his boots on.
