After landing, the pilot was rescued by an H-60 ​​Black Hawk helicopter. Brazilian Air Force Command says he has received medical attention and is doing well.

The aircraft incident occurred in the area of ​​the town of Campo Grande in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul.

Earlier this month, Brazil's Super Tucano intercepted a plane that had flown into Brazilian airspace without permission. Then the Brazilian pilots opened fire on the intruder and forced him to make an emergency landing. As it turned out, he did not have a flight plan and entered Brazilian airspace from Bolivia.

        What is the difficulty?
        A bit heavy. The light Cirrus has a rescue parachute for the entire aircraft.

    Judging by the fact that the seat lies not far from the aircraft, it can be assumed that the pilot ejected at low altitude or when the aircraft was diving almost vertically. Nice chair.
