Plane hit about 500 yards from University City High School off Genesee. In fact, the pilot (who ejected) landed on UCHS's baseball field. It's only a couple of miles from my work; you could see the smoke rising from our south-facing offices. One of our managers lives on Huggins St. and the plane hit literally only 12-15 houses away from hers.

That is correct. To add on to that, once you punch out a certain amount of times, not sure how many, they do not allow you to be a pilot anymore because you don't meet the height requirements any more. No joke, my uncle used to be in the Navy, worked on the planes as a mechanic, he told me about this himself.IsnipeWithAknife wrote:Crazy stuff. When you use an ejection seat, you come out 1 or 2 inches shorter from the force of the launch.
You just can't encourage stupidity
