That pilot is the one that invented and proved the'Cobra maneuver' He did it twice at the Paris airshow in '99 and it caused a compressor stall and total failure in the engines caused by bird ingestion. He lost power and could not control the thrust to pull out of the high angle dive. He was supposed to do a touch and go but had no thrust to save the aircraft. It was a Mig 29. One of the first times this aircraft was seen outside the Soviet Block.

No one's ever seen them pull a stall technique at an airshow? It's very easy to have something go wrong...oh, but leave it to the UFOers to know it all.
