    Default Plane Passenger Accidentally Ejects Himself

    You know any story that contains the words “accidentally pulled the black & yellow lever between his legs” and “the ejection sequence activated two rockets attached to the back of his chair” is going to be awesome...

    ------------------

    Plane passenger accidentally activates ejector seat - and survives

    A civilian passenger in an air force display plane accidentally activated the ejector seat while reaching for something to steady himself during a mid-air manoeuvre.

    The novice flier instantly shot through the jet's perspex canopy and was blasted 100 metres into the sky by the rocket-powered emergency chair.

    Experts said the man was lucky to escape unharmed following the bizarre incident, which happened on Wednesday in South Africa. It is thought he activated the ejector seat after lurching forward during an aerobatic manoeuvre and accidentally pulling on the black and yellow emergency handle between his legs.

    The lever is fitted as standard in the Pilatus PC-7 Mk II jets to allow pilots and their passengers to eject from the aircraft in the event of an emergency.
    As soon as it was activated, the ejection sequence activated two rockets attached to the back of his chair.

    The man, who has not been named, later floated back down to Earth on a parachute which opened automatically. South African Airforce bosses scrambled a helicopter to pick up the passenger after the blunder near Langebaanweg airfield, 80 miles north of Cape Town.

    The incident happened shortly after he took off for a joyride with an experienced pilot from South Africa's Silver Falcons air display team.
    yeah.......i'm still here.

    I accidentally ejected myself once. Had nothing to do with planes or flying, but I was embarrassed nonetheless.

    I saw on an episode of a show called Pawn Stars where a guy had a seat from an F-4 Phantom sitting around his living room. When he took it to the shop to be appraised and possibly pawned he found out that it had the ejector rockets still in it and if someone had pulled the handle while sitting in it they more than likely would have been killed. The guy then went on to tell them that his kids played on it all the time.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    Thank goodness the guy is safe. This maneuver did not work out so well for Goose.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Don't feel bad, it happens to a lot of men.
