Tie Club # 1552

I am grateful to God in first, to Martin-Baker, and the maintenance team of the ejection seats, because on October 31, 2007 I was successfully ejected, in which I did not suffer any injury, leaving the accident. It is with great satisfaction that I write this statement 13 years after the event and I am alive to tell the story. During the test flight after completing scheduled inspection, the aircraft had an engine failure, preventing sufficient thrust to allow the aircraft to reach its destination safely. At that moment, the pilot commanded the ejection about 400 meters from the airstrip, still inside the Air Force Academy.
