Syrian Mig-21 Fishbed Catches Fire in Midair

By: | July 16th, 2014

A video released from Daraa, in southwestern Syria, shows  a Syrian Arab Air Force Mig-21 Fishbed catching fire in midair as the result of a fuel leak.

It is unclear as to whether the pilot ejected, although it is highly likely, as the Mig-21 becomes engulfed in flames toward the end of the footage.

While it is an incredible video, here’s to hoping everyone involved was alright.
