"Sadly" since no one died and very few were injured this won't make many headlines over here which is a real shame as it's a sensational piece of airmanship to bring it down in the field so intact and so injury-free. Brilliant work by the pilot.

With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.
