Impressive photos & a sad day for the SU pilot. Did the Habu make it down in one piece?

The interweb has allowed the once passive observer to become judge and jury in and instant. Its actually brilliant. One can deduce for a few pictures and a quick story:
a. who was at fault
b. what they should do as reparation, and
c. the overall intelligence of the person at fault
