The final take-off of Thunder City's Lightning ZU-BEX, halfway through it's display the pilot reported hydraulic problems and decided to burn off fuel before returning. The decision was made to eject but the ejector seat malfunctioned, the aircraft crashed a few kilometres short of the base. RIP Dave Stock.
