MiG-29 Fulcrum Crash

At the 1989 Paris Airshow, the starboard engine of a fulcrum doing a high alpha pass failed. The pilot ejected at 500 feet, 110 miles per hour. The chute barely opened and he lived to eject a few months later at another air show. For the record, not many planes can do the maneouvers that the Fulcrum can do, and the USSR makes possibly the best ejection seats.
