CF-18 Hornet Down
This was one lucky pilot with a great ejection system. This CF-18 was lost a few days ago while practicing for an airshow in Alberta. While making his high angle of attack pass the Hornet apparently lost an engine causing the excess yaw and forcing the pilot to eject. A board of inquiry from the Canadian Air Force will be investigating the crash to determine the cause.
