Passenger fighter fighter Rafale-B catapulted on takeoff

The French Air Force could lose the Rafale-B fighter after the passenger in the back seat, frightened by the flight, accidentally catapulted. According to The Daily Telegraph, the pilot managed to land a fighter.


According to the publication, the passenger of the French Air Force fighter Rafale-B was a 64-year-old Frenchman, whom friends and colleagues presented as a flight on a military plane about retirement. He could not refuse the “gift”, since the departure was authorized by the French Air Force command, and four friends came to support him and even hired a professional photographer.

It is reported that the man himself never expressed “a desire to fly on a military aircraft” and was panicky afraid when under stress. When the plane took off, in order to hold on, he accidentally grabbed the ejection lever, after which the catapult worked and threw it out of the aircraft cockpit at an altitude of 750 meters.


According to the report of the Bureau of Investigation and Analysis, during the bailout the man lost his loose helmet, but he managed to successfully land in a field near the border with Germany, having received only minor injuries.

The fighter pilot, who also received minor injuries after the second seat’s catapult was triggered, managed to take control of the situation and land the plane, despite the fact that the fighter’s device involves simultaneous bailout from both seats.

It is clarified that the pilot of the French Air Force is 35 years old, he has more than 2 thousand hours of flying time on fighters, including 905 on Rafale, but for the first time a civilian appeared behind him.

An investigation is underway on this fact, the French Ministry of Defense and the Air Force command have already received a recommendation to review the procedure for admitting civilians to flights on military aircraft.

    Lucky ... a little more and in Germany would have landed ... from a series of jokes.

    Three women are driving in a car. One at the wheel and two in the back seat. Here
    they see a voting man. They stop, put him in the front seat.
    They go further. after a while, the lady driver can not cope
    with control, drives off the road and rushes directly onto the concrete wall.
    Confuses pedals, instead of the brake presses the gas and the wall is approaching everything
    more rapidly. A few tens of meters to the wall, a man abruptly vomits
    the parking brake and the car stops half a meter from death. Women start
    excitedly admire the man’s resourcefulness and reaction. He is modest

          IMHO, if the cost of a gift is not cheap, it’s better to give money.
          (Except in very rare cases when you are a very close person, for example, or you can give something to the necessary and interesting person, that you just can’t buy it — a special stamp or coin to a collector.)
          Otherwise, a gift can easily spoil the mood of both the birthday person and the person who presented it.
          Well, or at least the wish list of a traitor to someone close to you first compose and choose from it
          And so little spoiled mood, I also got health problems, bailout is not harmless entertainment, big overload

            This is done according to the principle:
            A gift should be expensive and worthless.
            In order to show respect and so that the donor was not sorry ....

              I came across many times when friends, acquaintances and relatives are sure that they are better than the name-holder, they know what he needs.
              And they are sure that it is useful.
              The fact that the meaning of the gift is to make someone nice, eludes them.

                Well, I gave my brother, along with his daughters and his wife, for half a century I presented a flight in an airplane as a second pilot, since childhood he dreamed of flying and he liked the present. So, the question arises whether there were friends, those who gave him such an extreme) and yes, brother essno, not on a combat, but on a civilian, got up and returned, but he was very happy that he had experienced airplane control

        the passenger of the fighter of the French air force Rafale-B was a 64-year-old Frenchman, to whom friends and colleagues presented a flight on a military aircraft for retirement.

        gave a flight on a military plane, and as a free bonus - a flight on a catapult yes

        Five years ago, one friend’s manager, friends and company executives gave a parachute jump for their birthday. He’s a big man, strong, but since childhood he’s very afraid for some reason ..

        Nowhere to go - jumped. With a fright, he managed to open both parachutes, both the main and the spare. They were partially confused and twisted, plus it accelerated greatly. In general, he stuck qualitatively into the ground and broke his leg in two places. Then he admitted that he was very happy that he did not have time to get laid out in the air. And he would say, he smelled fragrant while in a heap in his arms they dragged him to the car.

        He says that he remembered for a lifetime. The left leg is still limping.

          I am not familiar with Rafale, but recalling my type -23: I do not remember that there was a similar opportunity; there are examples. Remembering his classmate ejected with -31 - there seems to have been no separate ejection there either; we’ll ask right here, whoever has the benefit.
          And lucky because he was able to return the plane to the ground and safely leave it. If I’m not mistaken, then the third ruined Su-27 captain with a “square” surname was precisely because of problems with ejection - there the volunteers cut down the visor, Krymsk seems.

            - consecutive forced bailout of crew members: first a crew member of the rear cockpit (instructor), then a crew member of the front cockpit (pilot) while pulling out the bailout handrails on both seats;
            - compulsory bailout of the instructor from the handrail of bailout of the pilot's seat and subsequent bailout of the pilot;
            - bailout of the instructor from the handrails of his seat and the subsequent forced bailout of the pilot.

            Those. whoever pulls first (or both at once), the pilot first leaves the back “cabinet”, then from the front.

                In the first series, the T-6 was completely separate (autonomous), so in 1975 the navigator “jumped out” during launch, and the commander .. “stayed”.
                Then, if memory serves, they started to put the command system, when both jump, if it is in the “automatic” position, only the delay there is big ... 1,5 sec.

    A strange order in the French Air Force is to roll passengers on a fighter at the request of his comrades. Okay, but the “passenger” was simply obliged to undergo a physical examination, and if there was stress, the doctor should not have allowed him to fly, let alone a briefing. Well, let the “passenger” be glad that retirement was not the last day of his life.

    What about “them”? Do you have to pull one handle, and not two, as in our airplanes?

      Depends on the ejection seat.
      We have two handles on the K-36, but they pull one cable, they just think it’s more convenient. By the way, in order to pull our handle, the grip should be lower, and the movements of the hands to the center of the chest (this is so, just information).
      Rafal’s handle is also in the inguinal region, but with one loop, apparently, the grouping technique before exiting is slightly different.
      There are options when the pen is located on the headrest, holding it, the pilot pulls his hands on the contrary, from top to bottom to chest and stomach. There is a completely different stereotype of behavior: once an American colleague showed separate K-36 pens with the words "Eject"and the characteristic motion of jerking from the groin, he looked at me stupidly, but after the translator translated him, smiled, nodded his head and repeated the same gesture, but from behind his head))). By the way, I also found such an arrangement in the children's book about the planes that my son bought.
      And earlier (I don’t know now), it was a fashionable version of the handles behind the head restraint, but along with them a protective curtain for the face was pulled out, now this function is reliably performed by a filter, which when overloaded from 5g drops automatically, but the force at which the latch breaks can be reconfigured and on bole high rates from 10G. In short, there are many options, several main ones.

    According to the publication, the passenger of the French Air Force fighter Rafale-B was a 64-year-old Frenchman, whom friends and colleagues presented as a flight on a military plane about retirement.

    Better they would give him a trip on a NATO submarine.

    Apparently, the person is not in conflict, did not want to make the donors feel like idiots ... I tried to jump above my head for the sake of “friends and colleagues”.

    At the same time, he jumped with a parachute. Pleased friends. I can imagine how they will now solder it.

    According to the report of the Bureau of Investigation and Analysis, during the bailout, the man lost his loose helmet

    A unique case!
    And laughter and sin.
    If you watch videos from YouTube, then we too often pilots do not attract the mask and do not connect the occipital compensator. And not an drawn mask dangling on the crossbars, when entering the stream, leads to nose bridge injuries and eyebrows dissection in almost 100% of cases, but I don’t remember this in order not to fasten the helmet.
    Anyway, how did he survive that? Shoes fly off - I will not lie, but if the helmet flies off, then only with the head (((
    A man is humanly sorry, I understand that flying can be scary (I’m afraid of civilian planes myself), but catapulting is even worse)))).
    In Rafale, the ejection handle, like on the K-36 in the inguinal region, is also poisonous in yellow-black. Could alert!
    But the organizers just fly in full))

    Here are the suckers - he had to raise his retirement age to 65, and then he would fly only next year!

      Most likely both will catapult only when the lever explodes the first pilot. Otherwise, it is difficult to explain, only a system malfunction.

        With a longitudinal arrangement of operator seats, each pilot leaves the cockpit independently, the rear “passenger” always leaves first, so as not to intersect the front. With a transverse arrangement, it does not matter, but preferably simultaneously, but not so fundamentally, the guides carry the seats in different directions.
        Simultaneous (uniform for all) bailouts occurs only in stupid American films, I saw one offhand, where the US president jumped out of a hijacked plane and was saved by a 10-year-old boy whom dad sent one to the forest for the initiation rite.
