Might need flashplayer to view it.

These guys, ultimately bailing, are really calm, but in the end, couldn't save the plane.

Yes Man Vs Bird has always been a dangerous affair at low level. I remember a badly damaged F-111 managed to Regain RAAF Amberly. It was missing a Nose cone, Radar everything forward of the cockpit.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Shoot first and ask questions when you can. You can always say sorry later.

i had seen this several times before, but the ones i saw cut off a few seconds after the bird hit. always wanted to know what happened afterward.

good find!

The first time I saw this it was captioned as an F-16 dual seat trainer.

I looked around a bit and it was a Canadian Hawk trainer. Descent after chute deployment was less than 30 seconds and one crew member (the report I read didn't say if it was the IP or the student) was seriously injured during the sequence (it didn't say if it was the ejection, seat seperation, chute deployment, or landing). The ejection occurred at less than 1000 AGL.

Wow! I couldn't make out a word they were saying. The very British voice saying "GEAR NOT DOWN" is a giveaway that it's manufactured by BAe Systems though...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Cheers, MP.

Professionals at work would be my take.
