Check out this post I just got from my friend Jim Cooney:
Incredible photos from last Friday's accident in Canada ( Lethbridge ). Check out the sequence
of the canopy leaving the scene, the pilot in his rocket-powered seat coming out, the parachute
opening sequence, and the separated seat falling away. Modern technology at its best. All of this
happened in about two seconds from canopy off to the fireball.
For the complete story go to CBS.
