This picture is in a load of English newspapers today.

Why has it taken so long to be published bearing in mind the incident occurred five months ago?

No hidden agenda here, just curious.

Maybe it was used as evidence at an inquiry, or something?

Could be that the lucky photographer has only just processed the film, not knowing what he had. Happened to some great shots of the Russian aircraft that collided at Fairford about 10 years back, months later some brilliant shots appeared in the paper, the person who took them didn't realise their potential. Good phot though.

That's what happens when you fly a manouevre that requires 2700ft to recover from only 1600ft.

I have a copy of the in-cockpit video from takeoff to ejection/impact - the tape survived the crash/fireball. Now that's a well built VCR!
