    Navy jet crashes into apartments in Virginia - CNN.com

    Can't imagine a worse feeling than crashing a multimillion dollar jet into a residential area.

    I think I played that level in COD Modern Warfare.

    Must have known they were going down for a bit before ejecting:

    George Pilkington, a witness to the crash, said he saw the plane flying low, with its nose up and tail down, ejecting fuel-- which struck him as unusual. The engine was straining, he said.

    "It came over the top of my truck emptying fuel," Pilkington said.

    Don't worry, you wouldn't be feeling much of anything a few seconds into it.

    Every pilot just thinks they can be like Nick Cage in Con Air, that only works on The Strip, amateur.
