54. As stated numerous times on your thread and from initial reports

It appears that the pilots road the dead plane down as long as possible, dumped the fuel and then ejected. When I heard the original reports I had a similar WTF response, but it appears that they did all they could, had an unresponsive aircraft, then finally ejected. Seems like not ejecting would have resulted in two dead pilots and the same point of impact.
