The language is electrifying!

I know. I am reusing a pun but I am not as creative as all you lot.

No puns, just glad no one, including those on the ground, was injured.

The good news was that when he finally got home, his Tesla drove for weeks before needing a plug-in.

Out of the ashes, into the fire…
Ejecting to save oneself from a life threatening situation, only to end up in another.

Reminds me of the Swedish movie ”Älskar, älskar inte” (Love me, love me not. English title ”Born to fly”) where a Viggen pilot has a birdstrike and makes an emergency landing. On his way home, he stops by a lake for a quick swim and breaks his neck, diving in. The movie is more about the way back into life, after suffering paralysis.

But there are some cool shots of the Viggen, from the movie.

Something similar actually happened to a SwAF Lansen pilot who survived an ejection and hit a pothole riding his bicycle home, after duty.

I hope the pilot won’t be discharged.
