French Civilian Ejects From Rafale

I guess the French suspect the civilian touched something he shouldn't have , after the fighter took off. The civvie was unhurt but may not want to brag about the event. The less said the better.  :rofl:

No Caterpillar Club for that guy.

You have to egress fom a disabled aircraft, get under canopy and survive. Not disable the aircraft as you egress. ;D
