Here’s an interesting video showing an ejection from a different point of view….
On Oct. 27, 2015, a Royal Danish Air Force pilot was forced to eject from his F-16A block 20 MLU over the North Sea after jet suffered a landing gear problem that prevented it from safely landing back at Skrydstrup air base.
The pilot, belonging to ESK 727, successfully ejected from the jet (#83-1070) and was later rescued by a SAR (Search And Rescue) helicopter.
The video below tells his story.
It’s more than 1-hour long and, unfortunately, in Danish language only. Still, the very first seconds of the clip shows the moment the pilot ejected as seen through the Litening G4 Targeting pod footage.
Hi – I would just let you know, that we are working on english subtitles for this, so stay tuned.
The footage of the ejection is from the FLIR onboard the EH101 SAR-helicopter and not from a targeting-pod.
