When the chips are down and there is no way but to pull, the ejection handle in a combat jet, has helped save so many lives around the world, that Michael C. “Mike” Bennett had to tell this gripping story of survival. It is Mike’s labour of love that has resulted in what is known as “Project Get Out and Walk“.
The Project is a dedicated compilation of escape system from fighter jets, from the earliest parachute to the modern ejection seats, panning over three decades. This is truly an anthology of all the ejections that could be ascertained by the author, and the true stories told by “those who were there”, besides an analysis of various design concepts, successful and not so successful ones.
Project Get Out and Walk is a must for all aviation enthusiasts as well as those who fly those mean machines…the fighter jets!
