“My ejection was on April 22 1985, I used the MKO4B model, serial number BR244. It was a normal combat training flight, at 15,000 feet we started some warm up manoeuvres, during a roll with another airplane I lost control of mine, it started to spin out of control at a very high speed. After trying to control the roll many times, at 3,000 feet and 430 knots speed, I decided to eject. I remember the airplane burning just beneath me. The ejection process took place successfully, everything was right and the MB seat saved my life…! Just want to say thanks to MB for such a good and wonderful device…

Thanks!”
