Impressive footage shows a Belarusian Air Force MiG-29’s failed take off and subsequent ejection.

The video below shows a Belarusian Air Force MiG-29BM Fulcrum that caught fire on take off from Bobruisk on Feb. 27, 2017.

Although the incident is under investigation and initially filed as an “engine fire”, the footage seems to show a collapse of the landing gear, an uncommanded retraction (or an untimely one – even though this option is not mentioned in reports emerged so far..) that caused the aircraft to fall on the runway sparking fire.

Regardless of the root cause of the fire, the pilot was able to successfully eject from the aircraft.
