Collision, birds. BASH!
Bird Accident Strike Hazard.
Aircraft and pilot of the Indian Air Force [IAF] extremely lucky on this occasion.
From the Russian Internet web site Russian Times.
"WATCH Indian pilot fly into bird flock, avert deadly crash by ditching fuel pods in huge explosion"
Keep in mind that is a PRACTICE LOAD OF ORDNANCE AND FUEL PODS!
"The Indian Air Force almost met its match after a pilot encountered a flock of birds upon takeoff for a training mission, nearly downing his craft and forcing him to drop a haul of fuel pods, which erupted in a fiery explosion."
Jettisoning of fuel to prevent a catastrophic landing with explosion.
Film footage of this type hardly ever recorded. Events of this nature usually result in loss of plane and pilot.
