Ejector seat death investigated


Investigations are continuing into an incident in Norfolk in which a BAE employee in an RAF Tornado jet fell to his death after being ejected from the rear seat, made by Martin-Baker

The company is one of the leading manufacturers of ejector seats, and one of the places they are made is the Ronaldsway Aircraft Company, opposite Ronaldsway Airport.

The jet was being tested by BAE when the incident occurred.
