Hi guys! Just want to quote an F16 accident that happened some time ago.
"In aft ejection mode, the front pilot pulls the ejection handle. The aft pilot was supposed to be ejected first, and after a short delay, the front pilot. Suprisingly, the front pilot ejected first, and the rocket blast from the ACES II seat gave the aft pilot first degree burns. The aft pilot eventually ejected and he survived the ordeal."
I was told that this might have something to do with the M99 and M53 initiators. What went wrong? Something wrong with the ejection sequence?
