Right close

Steve R passes along a message with 5 images of a fighter jet crashing (presumably a Russian craft). The message read, "Pilots were lucky. Don't know about the people on the ground. Don't know where this is."

"One heckuva an ejection seat. Look at that downward vector, then see how high the parachutes are in the follow-on slides. This is what you would call .. right close!"

This is a Sukhoi-27, and the crash happened at an airshow in the Ukraine in 2002. Unfortunately, 83 people were killed. Both pilots walked away but were then hospitalized with spinal injuries. They were later arrested, but I'm not sure of the outcome.
