F-5F Crash

For people interested in the recent crash of the ROCAF F-5F 5371, I'm posting a link that will guide you to another blog - The New Hampshire Bushman in Taiwan. He is, as far as I know, the only person who caught the final moments of 5371 (the designation of the F-5F that crashed) on digital camera (not counting the lady who used her 0.3 MP cell cam) and who was able to provide an educated analysis on the matter. Here is the link:

My deepest condolences to the family of the two pilots, and I salute them for making the supreme sacrifice for the lives of others. They had ample time to eject safely, but instead they chose to go down with their plane and in the process save perhaps hundreds of innocent civilians from a fiery death. They are true heroes.
