Description
 
Your aircraft is on the verge of disintegration. “Eject!” You initiate ejection, & in an instant, miniature explosions sever the bolts holding your canopy, while you are forcibly pushed clear of the aircraft & into the atmosphere. While the actual ejection process takes mere seconds, designing a safe & effective eject system takes years. This fascinating account of the evolution of U.S. escape systems includes more than 100 unique photos & firsthand accounts of real-life ejections experienced by pilots. You’ll discover a history full of challenges & achievements, from the early days of manual bail-outs & parachutes, through the initial years of ejections during supersonic conditions, & into today’s most stunning innovations.
