                    MiG crash at the beginning (slowmo replay at the end):

                    F-18 crash at the beginning:

                    Gripen crash at 3:25

                    Another Gripen crash at 4:44

                    Another Hornet crash at 6:55

                    And ANOTHER Hornet crash at 13:50

                    Perks of filming almost everything... one eventually gets a bunch of mishaps on camera!

                      We had planned to make a youtube film of this model, but it flew just about 30 seconds and is was fully fueled as you can see of the huge explosion.

                        1. Battery failure mid flight (still a noob pilot at the time)

                        2. Better piloting, still dumb. Thought I'd just do some random spins and entered a fully developed spin too low :( (the airplane is fixable).

                          That's so sad to witness... I've seen a big F-18 go in myself (another Skymaster I think?), it was a while ago but since we're at it...

                          Apparently, the fuel tank ruptured and the engine inhaled the kerosene, causing it to stall and immediately causing a widespread fire. :'(

                              Oh man, some more good ones.

                              Airguardian - Some really heartbreaking ones in there!
                              @BjarneKvilvang - Thanks for the entry, that was a solid fireball

                              @Connor223 - that was a nice pass, just lost control.
