One second after crashing into its fellow MiG-29 during their demo. Both pilots ejected safely. At this moment the pilot is still in the aircraft!!! A very spectacular sight I can tell you. Unit: Flight Research Institute.

Pushed the button at exactly the right instant. The accident could not be anticipated, thus a quick reaction was crucial. In spite of these difficulties, the picture is acceptably sharp, and the picture composition is good.
And, best of all, the pilots survived; so it's a picture that actually depicts a very lucky moment, although it doesn't look like that.

It's hard to tell for sure but the black object in the center of the picture looks like the 20mm cannon that got knocked out of the airframe during the collision.
