Last-sec­ond bailout

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

Just mo­ments from im­pact, Cana­dian air force Capt. Brian Bews ejects from his CF-18 Hornet fighter as the jet plum­mets to the ground dur­ing a prac­tice flight Fri­day for a week­end air show in Leth­bridge, Al­berta. Bews, who has flown the CF-18 since 2004, was taken to the hos­pi­tal. His in­juries were not ex­pected to be life-threat­en­ing. The cause of the crash is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
