    Why wouldn`t the pilot be ejecting as well?

    "Why wouldn`t the pilot be ejecting as well?"

    A. It`s only a test..

    B. would you want to be the guy in the back...if the guy in the front went first?

    If the pilot ejects first or at the same time he risks frying his copilots face.

    @SgtFunny If this is a real photo or in real circumstances the person behind you ejects first(see the fire if the pilot ejected first the co pilot would have that in his face) secondly both don`t go at the same time because they could collide or their parachutes get entangled so the pilot ejects a second or to later.

    It might look fun, but if most of the cheez-it eating, cheez whiz spreading fat-tards who inhabit the internet tried it they would actually die, or if in better shape get knocked unconscious.
    Even for fit young people who pilot fighters this is a serious task.

    The egress motor fires about a quarter second after initiation of ejection. After about half a second, it is done, and a charge separates the aviator from the seat. During command ejection (where all ejection seats are triggered by one)there only need be a fraction of a second difference between egress firings. It looks nice and slow in the picture, but even at zero airspeed, the egress motor throws the aviator far clear very, very, very quickly. So quickly that spinal compression injuries are a concern.

    OK, plane-nerds- what airplane is this? A Mig-35? I`m just guessing by comparing this to other photos on-line.

    And Damn- being a fighter-pilot has to be one of the gnarliest jobs in the world.

    yeah, it looks cool from afar, but you do NOT want to be in that chair when it happens, im pretty sure you can only eject a total of three times in your life without becoming paralyzed due to compression of the spine :S

    Looks to me like an SU-27. The fringes on the tail are pretty unique to that kind of plane. But SU-27`s are a one-seat plane.

    Its a sukhoi su-35 and this stunt was performed for a russian film. The plane took off with the canopy already removed and then the passenger ejected. The pilot stayed in the plane and landed it.

    check it out here

    I think it was this film:

    Somehow I don`t think that would work well with helicopters.

    There are a number of choppers with ejector seats, in the Kamov KA-50, as the seat shoots upwards, the chopper blades are released individually using explosive bolts.

    Or the Polish Mk 1, where the pilot sits there working out the rhythm of the blades for a minute then shouts "NOW!!... DammSPLAT!!!"

    Did you know every time you are ejected out of a jet, you shrink an inch because your spine compresses so much? True fact. Air Force says so.

    This is not only NOT fun but causes lifeling complications for the person being ejected. You are expelled from the aircraft faster than some Low Cal bullets into wind that absolutly HAS to match the terminal velocity to sustain flight. When that wind hits your body it does extensive damage as does the sudden jot up your spinal collumn. People have reported whiplash, herniated or even collapsed disks in their spine, and in severe cases permanent vertigo. Ejection seats are in no way safe, but are a million times safer than faceplanting the ground in the aircraft you are confined to.

    Oh boo hoo, look I`m weeping in sympathy for him. I mean, its not like he`s flying a machine whose sole purpose is to murder people or anything. Poor pilot.

    My brother was serving on the Nimitz when a plane went over the side and the pilot ejected into the side of the ship; they literally hosed him off the hull.

    Maybe - but if you`re gonna go, wouldn`t you rather hit the ground in a really expensive sexy coffin - real fast? With an almighty BANG.

    You Russian pilots have some big sets of balls. I`ve seen more videos of Russian jets crashing, but not because they suck at flying... but because they just just did an inverted, flat spin, pulled out of it with a push of the afterburners and who knows what kind of pilot voodoo, and then tried to pass each other about 6" apart at 700 knots, but touched wings and had to eject at 50 feet from impact... then smoke a cigarette like this was just another day at the office.
