“On 20th Mar 2018 I was authorised to fly a tail chase solo sortie. While carrying out the specified manoeuvres the aircraft suddenly flicked and entered spin. I brought throttle to idle and centralised controls in order to recover the aircraft. The aircraft stopped spinning in a steep nose down attitude and to be on a safer side I glanced at the height. The height was approx in a figure of 5000′ (I don’t remember exactly). Hence I took a decision and ejected from the aircraft.
I am grateful to Martin-Baker and its members who have been designing these wonderful ejection seats and giving us a second life.”
