The pilot and a student were conducting a routine training flight heading to Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth

The pair were forced to eject themselves from the T-45C Goshawk jet trainer before the smash.

Nearly a year later, dramatic footage released by the US Military reveals the pair’s terrifying moments before the crash.

As a couple of birds can be seen flying overhead, suddenly one of them gets sucked into the jet’s engine.

One of the pilots yells “S***” as he is bracing for an emergency landing.

He then yells “We’re not going to make it! Standby to eject. Pull up! Pull up!” while an alarm can be heard in the background.

The chilling clip ends just before the aircraft crashes to the ground,  between the 4000 blocks of Texas and Dakota. 

The pilot only had minor injuries following the crash.

The student suffered burns after his parachutes became entangled in powerlines – causing mass power outages.

The shocking crash displaced the residents of up to six homes that were hit, but no injuries were reported.

Lake Worth Fire Chief Ryan Arthur said at the time it “could have been much worse.”

Up to 70 residents were affected by the crash and several homes sustained minor damage, but none of them took a direct hit.

The crash damaged the home of Mark Sellers, most, who was out shopping with his wife at the time but his son Chris and nine-year-old granddaughter were just inches away from the scene.

He told Fox 4: “Very scary. We could have lost him and lost my granddaughter.”
