Canadian fighter pilot Captain Brian Bews was in the middle of a practice flight near Lethbridge County Airport in Canada when things went south. As in straight down.
Practicing a maneuver on Friday for an airshow over the weekend, Bews' CF-18 fighter jet banked and then went straight into the ground. Luckily, Bews was able to eject at the very last second and is said to not have sustained any life-threatening injuries.
