Aug 3 -- The Naval Air Systems Command reported a major advance in the technology of escape systems. During the summer, the NWC at China Lake successfully tested a vertical-seeking ejection seat. While carrying a dummy crew member, the seat was fired downward from a suspended test module. It traveled downward less than 45 feet before reversing direction and traveling upward; it then parachuted safely to the ground. These tests demonstrated that the vertical-seeking seat would make it possible to safely eject upside down, within 50 feet of the surface, thus greatly increasing the safety envelope of ejection seats.

Hi!, You list a February 17, 1976 pair of ejections arising out of a midair collision between a Navy A-4 and a Marine F-4J.  The F-4 was from my squadron, VMFA-251 and the F-4 pilot who was killed was Captain George Ladd.  George was killed outright by the collision impact and the front cockpit damage prevented the RIO initiated dual sequenced ejection from firing the front seat.  The A-4 “Mongoose” belonged to the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School (TopGun) but I can’t remember the pilot’s name.  Both aircraft crashed 19 miles south of Tacna, Arizona, not into the Pacific Ocean.  I know because I was a member of the accident investigation board.  Ironically, George Ladd was a member of the board that investigated my September 16, 1975 crash of an F-4J.

FEEDBACK

Re Hunter crash at Mathry, 25 Oct `76. I was an RAF fireman at RAF Brawdy and attended this incident.

If memory serves correct, Air Traffic were very reluctant to release us, as Crash cover would have been severely compromised.

As we sat in the wagons waiting for clearance, we could actually see the smoke from the burning a/c.

The Crew Commander was Sgt Alan Wardle OBE and after a few frustrating minutes, he eventually basically told ATC that we were going anyway!

On arrival at the crash site the 22 Sqd Whirlwind had just taken off with the injured Pilot on board, and as we closed on the wreckage the Avpin tank blew! All I can say about that is that it was a sight to behold!

The Hunter had split into three parts. The main fuselage had finished up ahead of the nose and cockpit, with the tail approx 100 yards behind. It had been intimated at the time that had the Pilot stayed in the plane then he would have survived the crash, although I think that he was correct in his decision to bang out!

The wreckage was eventually lifted back to Brawdy using a Sea King from Yeovil.

The Fire Crew at the incident were Sgt Wardle, SAC George Craigie (the writer), on Crash 1 and SAC`s Gary Hatchell and Roy Appleby riding Crash 2. (Both Mk 8 fire wagons, the TACR as Crash 1 being in dock that day.)
