It's ironic that on this CF 18 video you can hear the song "Stayin' Alive" blasting over the pa system. It might have been the inspiration the pilot needed. This is not the typical air show stunt plane, but this is the typical air show ending. Plane goes down. Luckily, you can spot the pilot ejecting from the plane right before it crashes to the ground and explodes. A little over a minute into this CF 18 video, a slow motion breakdown shows you how close a call this really was.The pilot in this CF 18 video ejects just in the nick of time before the plane crashes. This is some amazing plane crash video taken at a Canadian air show. It's hard to imagine the pilot walked away unscathed. He had to have been really close to the fire and flying debris.
