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.

FLTLT Sean Singleton-Turner

FLTLT Sean Singleton-Turner, RAAF. On the 22 Nov 1992, while on exchange with RNZAF, I took a BAC167 Strikemaster (NZ6368) for a post-maintenance test flight. One of the required checks was spin characteristics and recovery. I entered a spin at 20000 ft and could not get the aircraft to recover. I ejected at 10000 ft (approximately 8500 agl) and came down not far from the wreckage on farmland. I received only minor back and facial injuries and, thanks to Martin-Baker, served another few years with the RAAF before a long airline career.
