With respect to "a wing being 400 yards from a school." Wings don't just fall off, especially on an aircraft capable of g loads that would kill the driver before the plane even bent!

I trust eyewitness reports about as far as I can throw a loaded F-15.

I didn't see the uncontrollable bit, is that a confirmed fact?
I'm not trying to have a stab at the pilots, I'm sure if they were properly trained then they would have done all that they could have....
It just seemed a bit premature for bailing out, but if they are correct and it was uncontrollable, then I guess they have their reason.
Our pilots train for every emergency to mitigate damage and injury. We hope they never have to use it, but we're glad they have it.
