Moment Russian pilot ejects from burning fighter jet seconds before explosion

Newly released footage shows the moment a Russian pilot ejected from a burning fighter jet just moments before it exploded.

This video is believed to show a Su-25 crash in Russia’s Belgorod Oblast in June of this year, which Russian officials said was caused by the aircraft striking a power line.

Just moments after the pilot escaped the jet it came crashing down into a field, bursting into a ball of flames.
