Man accidentally ejects himself from plane

An American man has accidentally ejected himself from a fighter jet.

The 64-year-old man was taking a ride in the fighter as a gift.

However, while flying the force of the take-off made him “float” off his seat, causing him to stand up and involuntarily grab the ejection handle to steady himself.

He was flying at over 500km/h at the time.

The air accident report, published on 6 April, found the man ejected himself when the two-seater Dassault Rafale B jet reached about 400 metres.

His parachute deployed and he had a relatively soft landing in a nearby field, avoiding serious injury, before being taken to hospital.

The pilot prevented himself from being automatically ejected too and was able to land the plane on the runway.

Investigations into the flight are continuing.
