What happens in this video ?

16th August 2010 – Argentina - The wing of this Rans S-9 Chaos broke off while the plane was performing a demonstration during an air show in Argentina. Immediately after the wing snapped off, the pilot activated the full-plane parachute system. After the plane impacted the ground, the pilot walked away uninjured, seconds before the aircraft burst in flames.
