Shocking Video Captures Fighter Jet Crash at Chinese Airshow [Video]

This shocking video from a Chinese airshow captures the heart-wrenching seconds before an FBC-1 “Flying Leopard” (Xian JH-7) nose dives straight into the ground. If you watch closely, you can see a pilot eject before the plane crashes. Chinese news sources are reporting that he is recovering, having suffered only mild injuries. However, the FBC-1 is a two-seater aircraft, and the second pilot is reported as “missing.”

This is the second crash of an FBC-1 since 2009.
