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.

Alberto Gagliardi

“On September 28, 1969 two Aermacchi MB326 had a mid air collision and crashed into the Adriatic Sea. All four pilots saved their life thanks to the perfect operation of their Martin-Baker MK-4 ejection seats.

I am one of those pilots, and exactly fifty years later, to day September 28, 2019, I wish to express once again my true appreciation and gratitude primarily to the founders Sir James Martin and Captain Valentine Baker and also to all the staff of Martin-Baker family business . Since 1946 with their intelligence and work they have contributed to save thousands of pilot lives.

One particular thank comes also from my daughter that was born in the same day 29 years later.”

Former Fl. Lt. Alberto Gagliardi
