Two Royal Air Force pilots were coming back from a mission on a very busy day in Kandahar, Afghanistan and were told to land their Harrier jets quickly. One pilot came in a bit too quick, however.

You can see in the video below, the jet slide almost 4,000 feet before bursting into flames. With armed bombs still being carried, this was a dangerous prospect.

The pilot tried to right the jet to no avail, and he had to eject.

Check out the pulse-pounding footage:
