VIDEO: Terrifying Ejection From A Downed Underwater Fighter Jet

By  | 

Wow! Underwater ejection? This video shows how to escape through underwater ejection from a downed fighter jet. It shows a couple of different angles in which the pilot can “safely” eject to the surface. Nose down, tail down, and inverted!?! While ejecting, according to this old animation, there should be about 10 feet water above the pilot for safe ejection. Obviously this is a piece of historic stock footage dated 1965, but how “safe” and practical do you think this really was? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
