Man accidentally ejects himself from fighter jet during unwanted “experience” present from colleagues that he accepted out of politeness

Yeah, quite the story! The part that stood out for me was this:

“A malfunction prevented the pilot from being automatically ejected too and he was able to land the plane on the runway despite the involuntary departure of his passenger and the loss of the cockpit canopy.”

So presumably it was only this malfunction that prevented the pilot being ejected and the whole plane crashing to the ground

Really hope he’s asked for his name not to be used and his face to be pixelated so he can say ‘yeah, it was great, thanks everyone’ when his colleagues excitedly ask how it went.

This really made me laugh

“The man had never expressed any desire to fly in a fighter jet and had no previous military aviation experience, investigators said.”
