Pilot Ejects in the Last Moment to Survive Jet Crash

Pilot’s incredible escape from a jet crash in Canada has been captured on film and in a series of dramatic photographs. This happened during an afternoon practice session for an air show at the Lethbridge County Airport, near Alberta in Canada.
As Captain Brian Bews, 36, of the Royal Canadian Air Force performed a daring low pass of an airfield yesterday, his CF-18 fighter jet suddenly stalled. With only a split second before his plane hit the ground in giant ball of flame, this air force pilot miraculously managed to eject to safety. His quick reactions and his rocket-powered ejector seat saved his life as he was catapulted out of the stricken £30 million aircraft.

Captain Bews was taken to hospital, where he remains this weekend after landing hard and getting dragged across the runway by his parachute.

‘He’s in the hospital,’ his sister-in-law, Heather Bews, said.

‘His ego’s hurting pretty bad, but we don’t even care. We don’t care about the plane, the show… we just care about him.’

The cause of the crash is so far unknown and there were no more details on the pilot’s injuries.

Pilot Capt. Brian Bews ejects as his a CF-18 fighter jet plummets to the ground during a practice flight at the Lethbridge County Airport on Friday, July 23 for the weekend airshow in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. “He is alive and we believe right now that his injuries are non-life-threatening,” Canadian Forces Capt. Nicole Meszaros told CBC News.

Unseen World War II Photos

World War II photos taken in the former USSR during World War II on the occupied territories. These are photos from family archives posted online by grandchildren of those who took part in the war: the authors of most of them remain unknown. Some of the photos belong to the Soviet journalists: Dmitri Baltermants and Vladimir Lupejko. The photographs are cruel and shocking, but they should teach us about life and how precious it is. We are all equals during our short life on this planet and all nations should embrace others and cease all conflicts. For the better future of our children, may the history never repeat itself.

Unbelievable Luck: Tugboat Pulls-off an Impossible Maneuver

Sometimes all you need to have a successful sail is a bit of luck. No wonder sailors are known for their superstition and strange rituals. Looks like these sailors have done everything by the book, since they have had the enormous luck not to sink this tugboat as it “sailed” beneath the bridge. Just look at this series of sequential images and see for your selves. You won’t believe your eyes what impossible maneuver they managed to pull-off. This was definitely not just another day at the river for them!

The towboat is approaching the bridge with barges loaded with coal.

This frame gives you an idea of how fast the river is running. Obviously at or near flood stage…

Looks like trouble.The bridge didn’t open and the boat can’t stop. Notice that the tug has released the barges. He is backing as hard as possible to try and avoid a collision with the bridge.

Can’t back down enough against the current.

Uh Oh! The current has swung the boat around sideways.

What would happen if you parked a Nissan Qashqai at the bottom of a hill and roll hundreds of bowling balls in its direction? Sounds like an insane scenario? Maybe some companies are getting insane when it comes to car testing, at least that is what we thought about Nissan when we’ve seen the kind insane (and cool) crash tests they’ve done on this beauty.

Naturally using bowling balls crash-test is a bit of a stretch icon smile in Creative Advertising Campaign: Urban Bowling … But, hey…It is really fun thing to test.

Looks like, when it comes to testing Nisan is going beyond the limits. If you’ve seen the video, you’ll know what we mean. If you haven’t, check out this cool ad campaign video titled “Urban Bowling” by playing the video below: Read more

Olympic Torch Path to Vancouver in Photos

After departing Athens, Greece on October 30th, the Olympic Flame has been traveling across Canada, now about 1/3 of the way into its 106-day, 26,000 km overland relay (another 18,000 km by air). Over 12,000 torch-bearers will carry the flame along a winding path covering all of Canada, passing through over 1,000 communities total – from Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary to smaller communities such as Gwa’Sala-Nakwaxda’xw, Notre-Dame-du-Lac, Moose Jaw and Sheshatshiu. The final destination: Vancouver’s BC Place on February 12, 2010, where it will light the Olympic Cauldron and signal the start of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
