ACM is a tough business.
And let's get one thing straight. There's a big difference between a pilot and an aviator. One is a technician; the other is an artist in love with flight. — E. B. Jeppesen

Terrible news, always sad to lose an airman like that. According to reports, the surviving pilot was recovered from 66 feet up in a tree after ejecting, which won't have been pleasant.

I'm always surprised such incidents are so rare given the tight formations Air Force pilots often fly. Their skill levels must be incredible.
A million great ideas...

Yeah, one sneeze at the wrong time and it could end very badly.

That video is dreadful, why did the muppet not turn his phone around to landscape? Duh.
