Tie Club # 1552

“I ejected from a Harrier GR7a following a total engine failure whilst in the circuit at RAF Cottesmore in June, 2008. I think you always just trust that the seat you have spent thousands of hours sitting on will just ‘work’ when you need it – and work it did. But of course the story of how these extraordinary seats come to ‘just work’ at moments of such extreme peril deserves more than a passing acknowledgement and I felt honoured to come to Martin-Baker with my children recently to meet the people whose dedication had saved my life. What an incredible Company, and what incredible people. Thank you is hardly enough, but to put on the tie and to come and say it in person gave me enormous satisfaction. Thank you again.”
