Unexpected Ejection: A Sky-High Surprise

A man who was presented with a fighter jet flight as a gift from his colleagues unintentionally triggered the ejection seat and was thrust out of the cockpit. He lived to tell the tale, even though he admitted that he had never shown any prior desire with embarking on such a flight.

A 64-year-old defence company executive, who had no prior military aviation experience, accidentally ejected himself from a fighter jet while flying at over 500km/h after the force of the take-off caused him to “float” off his seat. The man managed to land safely in a field without serious injury, while the pilot was able to land the plane on the runway despite the loss of the cockpit canopy​.
