"The ejection system - the best the Air Force has, one used in other jets as well - is routinely described by ejectees as the most violent thing they have ever experienced. Aviators are shot from the cockpit by rockets, with a G force that punishes them with 14 times their body weight.

This taken from a story on a B-1 that went down over the Indian Ocean in 2001. You can read the full story here. Not sure how the ejection of a B-1 compares to an F-16, I would think G's pulled would be similar. Regardless, it would be one helluva rough ride!

An excerpt from this article:


The four men in the Dec. 12 crew, part of a squadron of 60 aviators at Diego, were flying their first mission together. "Rooster," the copilot, 31, was out of Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho, as was Allen "Lost" Griffis, 30, the defensive-systems officer, charged with watching for enemy radar "painting" the B-1, and with controlling electronic countermeasures. The two were acquainted.


Now THAT is ironic.

Hard to think of a pilot having to eject, pulling 20g's then getting hit with the 300+mph airstream, as "lucky" but I suppose it's better than getting hit by the tail of the plane, or worse, the ground!


I was very please to read that he was uninjured. Great video and photos.

Depends on the weight of the pilot. 18 -20 g's
is the injury harzard zone for permanent spinal
compression. Placing weight in the seat-pan is
one way to compensate for lite pilots. This baby
has boosted some heavy guys well over the tail.

i remember in a thread not too long ago on this someone mentioned that he must not have been flying fast since the leading edge flaps were down. after seeing that video it's clear way. the plane had somehow stalled and he dropped them in order to help get more lift. when the plane was level and still falling downwards no air (or just not enough) was flowing along the top surface of the wings so no lift. i had thought previosly that they were slowflighting or something and that he lost control.
