OOC: And even more, as you may or may not suspect someone else is about 
to be introduced into the company.

The lone jet seems to race towards the ocean, and then the canopy bursts 
off of the jet and somebody is ejected.  Their seat parachute bursts 
open but it's too low to the ground to do much good and they hit seconds 
later at a rather high rate of speed.

A figure can be seen inside the pilot seat of the jet, as the jet 
suddenly decelerates pretty rapidly.  The pilot looks to be trying to 
steer it back towards the pursuing jets, who have shot past, not 
expecting their quarry to slow down.  But something seems to go horribly 
wrong, as the jet, instead of picking up altitude, instead slowly banks 
to the left and then hits the ground.  Moments before it does, the pilot 
can be seen jumping out of the jet, but what happens to them is masked 
by the impressive explosion and fireball as the jet carves its way into 
the grassy plain.

[Sir Burton]
Sir Burton shakes his head in sheer shock and awe, a look clearly not 
one his face is familiar with.
