    Gripen fighter jet crashes at hat yai air show, pilot killed



    SONGKHLA — A Royal Thai Air Force pilot was killed when a jet went down during a Children’s Day air show at an airbase in the southern city of Hat Yai.


    The JAS 39 Gripen was maneuvering over the airbase when it suddenly lost altitude, slammed into the ground and exploded. The pilot, 34-year-old Group Capt. Dilokrit Patawee, did not eject.


    A fire truck rushing to the scene of the crash overturned, but no one was seriously injured.

    The fire truck overturning says it all about Thai driving skills.
    At least the pilot avoided hitting anyone on the ground.

    AT SOME POINT IN LIFE, EVERYONE HAS GAMBLED ON A FART AND LOST.
