And speaking of "flippin'," if you look real close you can see his weapon tumbling back to earth afterwards.

No sign of he himself tumbling to earth, though...

I never noticed the gun coming back down before. Why would anyone think it would be a good idea to take pot shots at a tank when the tank can answer with 155mm HE?

If you Zapruder the clip, there's one frame right when the round hits where he's (completely by coincidence) looking at the exact spot.

Since the signal from the eyes travels the optical nerve to the brain at only about 200 mph, and the fragments from the tank round were probably travelling two or three times faster than that, it's highly likely that even though he was looking right at the impact location when the round hit, he died without seeing it.
