It is very dangerous to eject from a jet that is going at supersonic speeds and many pilots have suffered from fatal injuries due to attempting this. Air Force pilot Capt. Brian Udell somehow survived ejecting from his jet going over seven hundred and fifty miles per hour. He details the event in a very painful manner as swell.
- Ejecting from a fighter plane is dangerous.
- When a pilot ejects from a plane at supersonic speed, the wind hits him at over 700 MPH.
- Air Force Captain Brian Udall barely survived ejection when his plane was travelling at more than the speed of sound.
““When I went out into the wind stream, it ripped my helmet right off my head, broke all the blood vessels in my head and face, my head was swollen the size of a basketball and my lips were the size of cucumbers.””
