[Video] This is what being in the trajectory of a bomb dropped by a Syrian attack plane looks like

In a previous post we have seen a cameraman receiving a direct hit from a tank shell.

Even if this is less spectacular so to say, this video is interesting because it shows a Syrian fighter bomber releasing flares to deceive eventual MANPADS while overflying a Syrian rebel position followed by a free fall bomb almost hitting the guy who was filming the scene.

The aircraft is difficult to ID (it may be a Su-22 Fitter) so as the bomb.

A lesson learned? If you see a warplane make an evasive maneuver over your head, you might better take shelter as soon as you can.

H/T to Matt Fanning for sending the link to the video
