Ejector seat of F-35 stealth fighter (video)
Scientists said the ejector seat passed all its tests during 30 test runs made in Britain, France and the U.S.
‘Ejecting from an aircraft like F-35 typically takes no more than three seconds from the time the ejection handle is pulled to the pilot being on a parachute,’ BAE Systems’ Rick Whitaker told The Sun.
The escape system, used in emergency situations, ensures pilots can eject safely and will be fitted to all 3000+ F-35 aircraft which will be flown by armed forces across the globe.
