A US-made F-18 fighter jet crashed to earth and violently exploded during a military exhibition at an air base in Spain on Saturday. The pilot escaped before the crash and was rushed to a nearby hospital.

The incident took place during a practice flight ahead of a demonstration for military families at the Zaragoza Air Base, a Spanish Air Force facility formerly used by the US Air Force.

Video footage shows the jet climbing steeply, before leveling out and nosediving back to the ground. A massive fireball erupted from the crash site, and burning jet fuel sent a column of black smoke into the sky.
