Hey CMATT, you must of known the demo pilot. Good to see he made it out alive.

Indeed, that jet was one of the one with the newly upgraded ejection seats (NACES). We are all relieved he made it the right decision in time and got out. More to follow, but looks like engine trouble based of the nozzle positions at impact. Not much you can do at hi AOA and one engine.

One thing is for certain: that plane is going to need the center barrel replacement program and some zero-timed wings Wink
