Of course the pilot survived, Lars Rådeström only broke one arm and where soon flying planes again.
This was Gripens sitxh flight ever and the control software was still being calibrated. They even knew about the problem that caused the crash but the extremley gusty winds on that day made the problem much much worse.
It is official facts. This crash happened in 1989 and the reasons for the crash was released after just a couple of weeks... This video was also released almost imediatley after the crash, but with about 13 seconds of the beginning missing. The audio from this video when the SAAB technichan nearby shouts "damn, damn, damn" is a Swedish news-classic.
