Imagine flying at mach speeds in a fighter jet, going blindingly fast, paying special attention to your instruments and guidance systems, when all of a sudden, something unexpected goes wrong and your aircraft is sent spinning. You’re out of control, and your only options are to go down with the plane, or hit the ejector seat, being shot out of the plane moments before it goes down. Luckily, this ejection invention allows pilots to escape a malfunctioning jet plane before it crashes, parachuting safely to the ground to fly again another day. It can happen in live action exercises, drills, or air shows, and when a plane goes down in an explosion of jet fuel, millions of dollars are lost. In this video, we see a few pilots make shocking last second escapes before their jet planes crash to the ground!
