IAN MARTENS/Lethbridge (Alberta) Herald
Capt. Brian Bews parachutes to safety Friday as his CF-18 fighter jet plummets to the ground during a practice flight at the Lethbridge County Airport for the weekend airshow in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. Bews was treated at a hospital for a sore back and scraped arms and released Friday. All of a sudden you could hear pop, pop, pop, witness Roland Booth told CTV News. I saw sparks come out of the one engine. The plane started banking over to the side. Thats when the pilot bailed out with his parachute.
