Ejection Tie Club

Here at Martin-Baker, we run an exclusive club that unifies all pilots whose lives we’ve helped save: life membership of the Ejection Tie Club is confined solely to those who have emergency ejected from an aircraft using a Martin-Baker ejection seat, which has thereby saved their life.

To search our collection of Ejectee testimonials please enter information in the below search bar. If you have an Ejection story of your own that you’d like to share with us to be shown on this page, please forward to information@martin-baker.co.uk.

Mike Ling

On 23rd March 2010, a RAF Red Arrows Hawk was taking part in pre-season training at Hellenic Air Force base in Kastelli, Crete. During the opposing pair manoeuvre between Red 6 and Red 7, a mid-air collision occurred. Red 6 (Mike Ling) made a lucky escape and ejected from his aircraft. “I am the very lucky pilot of the Red Arrows Hawk that was forced to eject following a mid- air collision on 23rd March 2010 at Hellenic Air Base, Crete. I am eternally grateful to the sterling efforts of Martin-Baker”.
