Gripen Fighter Jet Crashes at Hat Yai Air Show, Pilot Killed

JAS-39 Gripen crashes at Children's Day air show in Hat Yai, Thailand

A Royal Thai Air Force pilot was killed when a jet went down during a Children’s Day air show at an airbase in the southern city of Hat Yai.

The JAS 39 Gripen  was maneuvering over the airbase when it suddenly lost altitude, slammed into the ground and exploded. The pilot, 34-year-old Group Capt. Dilokrit Patawee, did not eject.

A fire truck rushing to the scene of the crash overturned, but no one was seriously injured.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
