This is the horror moment a fighter jet pilot crashes and explodes in a fire ball today (Saturday) at a children’s air show. Group Captain Dilokrit Pattavee, 34, was pulling death-defying stunts over the airprort when he suddenly lost altitude. The Royal Thai Air Force pilot’s JAS 39 Gripen nose dives into the ground during the Children’s Day air show in Hat Yai, southern Thailand near the border with Malaysia. Crowds scream in shock as a massive orange fireball erupts from the ground sending a plume of thick black smoke into the air at 9.27AM. The pilot – who had only been married three years ago – did not eject and was killed instantly.
