Yeah I wasn't sure, I couldn't remember if I'd seen it before.

There's a "photoshopped" version of this too. The wing falls off but the pilot continues the routine and lands in one side.

I didn't know the beginning was real too. As soft as the landing is compared to the alternative, I wonder how hard it is when you actually hit under the control of the BRS. I'm sure you still get dinged up. I'm def. not downtalking the BRS, I'd sure take a little dinged up over smashed to peices!

im sure ive seen it some time ago
But still, it's a great reminder of the impact safety devices provide.
Glad the pilot had a chute ...

Would it be safe to conclude a properly maintained plane would not be likely to have these issues? Planes have maximum performance limits but they are built to excede those limits to insure the limits are effective.

Anybody know which type of aircraft this is?

It would be interesting to know what kind of airplane it was.

Interesting that the whole plane is on a parachute, not just an ejected pilot.

Almost looks like it was staged. Or put it another way, Hey the planes got it own parachute!

Staged? Are you serious?

I'd say more, suspicious. Seeing as I don't really care either way :)
