Eagles Down

This happened right next door to us:

Air Force: 1 pilot dies, another survives after F15Cs collide

Turns out that, instead, it was two USAF F-15's from our neighbors at Eglin AFB. I'm bummed that one of the pilots didn't make it.

It reminded me of this video I saw on YouTube a while ago, which is pretty freakin' scary. Both of these pilots survived:
