Pilots Eject From MiG-23 Jet In Dramatic Air Show Scene

michigan air show

On Sunday, an unforgettable spectacle unfolded at the Thunder Over Michigan air show as pilots were forced to eject from their Soviet-designed MiG-23 fighter plane moments before it crashed near a residential area off I-94. Thankfully, all pilots were recovered in good condition from a nearby lake and there were no casualties reported at the crash site.

Eye-witnesses captured incredible video of pilots leaping out of the craft as it began to smoke, and flames briefly escaping from its body. The footage is a stark reminder of the dangers of aerial performances, and the bravery of these pilots who put their lives at risk to entertain us all. Its certainly an event that won’t soon be forgotten in the area.

Thunder Over Michigan came to a dramatic halt today when a crash was reported shortly after the two-day air show began. Fans of the 25th annual event flocked to the Facebook page, but all they received was an urgent instruction to leave. According to the post, there had been “a situation that requires us to stop the show”.

At this time, an investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing, and authorities have yet to release any additional information. Fox News Digital has reached out to both a Thunder Over Michigan spokesperson and Wayne County Sheriff’s Office for comment, but is yet to receive a response.
