The ordinance was removed to a nearby safety area and destroyed. They still have to deal with the hydrazine, fuel, and hydraulic fluid. At least they don't use skydrol anymore.

Looks like the roof cushioned the fall a bit.Why does it remind me of Cpt Marvel falling through the the Blockbuster store roof.

I suspect, based on the lack of fire or explosion, that it's going to come out that the pilot knew he was going down and cut off the fuel to the engine, shutting down the engine prior to ejecting.

Saw that last night and laughed at the comments. First comment and reply:

"What was the reason for the ejection?"

"The pilot didn't want to die."

from the looks of it the airplane had a better chance making it to runway without the pilot
so ejecting was the right call
obviously
