"dont have you have to be several hundred feet in the air for the parachute to fully open and work correctly...?"

Good question. It used to be the case that you did in fact require altitude for the parachute to deploy, however, modern fighters are equipped with "zero-zero ejection seats". The ejection seat is rocket powered, and the parachute is explosively deployed (a bit like an airbag), which means that with zero airspeed and zero altitude, you can still eject and likely survive.

Slow speed and low altitude make for the most challenging flight, so ejection systems were designed to handle that part of the envelope.

(Note that I said "survive". Ejecting from a fighter is *extremely* rough with such high G-loads that you will certainly be much the worse for wear, perhaps even with fractured vertebrae, but injuries can heal. Death tends to be permanent. There`s also the chance you will parachute into the fireball...)

I like the fact that the jet is entering the vehicle control zone.

Oh yes, you`re right, maybe he should`ve just stayed inside the jet :)

lol you know the shelf life of internet pics is low when something that happened last summer is getting spammed for being old. Either that, or the guy saying old is an idiot. Could go either way, I think.

i think he suffered a broken leg or something from the landing. there was a fireball, which he missed. kudos to him though, he risked his life to ensure that the aircraft doesn`t crash near the crowd. almost cost him his life. fantastic pilot. happened in cold lake alberta last summer. google it if you think it`s shopped. i was there, scary

Those ejection seats are also rocket assisted. Still, I don`t think my nuts are big enough to have kept me in it that long.

this was in the news a while ago.
it`s not shopped. the plane lost power to one engine and there were some shearing forces on one wing as the plane stalled. pilot ejected as the manouver he was in had him too close to the ground to reduce thrust in the other engine and land the plane. he was knocked unconscious when he hit the ground but was otherwise OK

despite common belief, this is not shopped. It was in the news like half a year ago. This is, however, a repost.

The pilot just bought a slightly used CF-18 (US$35 million(1977)).

I think this guy just lit a bag of dog crap on fire, put it on Death`s porch, rang the doorbell, and spat in Death`s face. Then he ran away. That`s how awesome this picture is.

The pilots do that on purpose at airshows when they can`t stop the plane from going down. They try very hard to make sure it goes down in a location that won`t hurt anyone, and then they stay in the plane as long as they can to make sure it goes down where they want it. Kind of heroic, if you ask me.
