I can't tell if that is just lucky or some serious pilot skill. If he mucked up the barrel roll at low altitude, what a tit - buuut .. if it rolled due to malfunction, he's bounced it off the runway back up into the sky, taken it over a river, ejected & dumped it - what a cracking piece of piloting..!

2-seat trainer.
Sadly, one of the crew later died in hospital, according to reports. It’s not clear in the videos that I’ve seen, whether the second ejection worked, or if it was just too low altitude/bad attitude for a safe ejection.
