It all depends on the severity of the crash. Most military transport planes have their seats facing backwards, except for the flight crew, of course.
They need to see where they are going
If you slam into a mountain at 600mph, I agree, I don't think the seat is going to save you....but you never know! However there are often "crashes"
at much lower velocities where your seat orientation could make a huge impact. The human body can take a lot more punishment on its back than it can
on its front.
