The Alberta International Air Show was the scene of the crash of a CF-18. The pilot ejected and these dramatic photos were snapped.
The CF-18 crashed yesterday in Lethbridge, Canada, near Alberta.
Canadian Air Force pilot Captain Brian Bews ejected safely from his CF-18 fighter jet just moments before it crashed during a practice flight on the eve of the annual event.
Bews escaped serious injury in the crash, which occurred during the noon-hour while he was attempting a slow-speed pass over the airport. After ejecting, he narrowly missed being hit by the plane as it plunged to the ground and exploded in flames near the junction of two runways, according to witnesses.
