    i wonder if it sucked in a bird or something
    although i've never heard of a fighter being brought down by a bird
    pilots lived but went to hospital, probably from ejecting too low

    sounds like the pilot was attempting to limit damage by dumping fuel
    or perhaps there was a fuel leak that caused the crash in the first place

    Yea, it seems like he was dumping fuel to prevent a bigger explosion and I think he was aiming for the courtyard of the apt complex.
