Video – Japanese F-2 Crash during Takeoff

This Japanese F-2 fighter jet burst into flames just after takeoff in Nagoya, central Japan, on 31 October, but its two pilots managed to escape with minor injuries.
The plane was about to start its first test flight since it was docked for regular check-ups at the domestic airport of Nagoya.
It nosedived immediately after takeoff at the airport and glided on its tail over the runway before swerving off into the grass.

“We failed on takeoff and the fuselage plunged almost vertically from a height of 50 meters,” one of the pilots said.
The cause of the accident is not known yet.
