"Road and impacted in a field and blew up. You know, it could have done that. So more than a million and a half. Martin baker ejection seats? Yeah, yeah. Do they get their prize for all my certainly? Yes. But unlike most people who write a vivid description of how Marty baker saved their lives and it goes on the Marlin baker website, you can read all the stories of people's ejections. I have a feeling that this will be a bit of a one liner. No comment. I'll just tell you what it's a classified operation. Exactly. Can't talk about it. I'd really love to tell you about I can't. Yeah, let's try it. It's been redacted. Heavily redacted. Yeah, this reminded me we talked a couple of months ago you know about an F-22 incident at eglin where they had their washing the airplane and I think they had left some of the ports taped up or something. But in that incident also, the pilot was taxing out and got a bunch of warnings or not a bunch. But got warnings on the airplane that said, you know, we're not ready for takeoff and he went ahead and took off anyway. He's like scenario as well. And bent that jet up worse. Very true. And also reminds me we're talking about ejecting and then the airplane doing like flying off on its own. I don't think it was too many app as well, a couple of years ago, wasn't like an F-16 Thunderbird pilot had some kind of an issue with the airplane and ejected and the thing landed in the field and was pretty much intact when it landed in the field. Do you call that? Yeah, I think that was Colorado Springs during graduation. And I think yeah, I think there was rumors that maybe he ran out of gas or something. Okay. I don't know. I don't know. That's just some of the stuff that I read. Embarrassing in the entire table would not be told on the website. Yeah. Heavily redacted. Heavily redacted. Okay. All right. Well, thank you, Nick for your index expert. I'm going to get some replies from my Australian mates. That's all you bomber peaks out there. It's captain Nick Anderson. Okay, thank you. This next one from the aviation Herald, jetstar, Asia, Airbus, a three 2200. Registration 9 Victor Juliet's Sierra uniform performing flight two O 5 from Singapore to Jakarta, Indonesia, with 15 people on board, was performing a rolling takeoff from Singapore, how is it again? Kangi, kandy? I don't know why I have trouble with that. Yeah. Airports. Runway two zero left at 2011, which is 8 11 p.m., local time. When the crew noticed that the runway's centerline lights were off, and believed the runway edge lights were on, though more faint than usual. The crew commenced the takeoff were unsure whether the runway end lights were eliminated, upon rotation the crew noticed the runway edge lights had gone off. Climbing out the crew reported to tower, who then switched all runway lights on. Singapore's TSI B released their final report, let's see, concluding the probable causes of the takeoff incident were the controllers had to judge the hours of darkness to decide when to switch on the airfield lighting for night operations. This method is subjective. When runway runway controller three looked out the tower windows to check if the runway edge lights and runway center line lights were on, it is likely that due to expectation bias she did not notice that the runway lights were off. The runway controller three also looked at the alpha dash display to check if the runway lights were on, however, the graphical presentation of the a SMG CS display appeared quite cluttered and she did not discern that the runway lights were off. Let's see. It's likely that due to expectation bias, the flight crew presumed that the runway edge lights in runway and lights were on, and thus they proceeded with the take off on the grounds that such a runway light configuration met the operators, standard operating procedure requirement for a night takeoff. The first officer did not share what the pilot and command his thoughts about querying on the absence of the runway center line lights. This suggests that the crew resource management performance was not optimum. During the introduction of a new type of edge lights for runway three, the an SP did not consider whether such runway edge lights could be seen or could easily be seen by controllers in the changi east tower. Not all controllers were aware that the an SP has an in-house hazard reporting system. That's must be why they didn't report this hazard. Anyway, it turns out that the operators SOP allows takeoff without runway center line lights provided that both the runway end lights and runway edge lights are on. The flight crew did not ensure this condition was satisfied before it initiating the takeoff roll. Anyway, so basically the incident here was that they took off on a runway with not appropriate lighting for the situation. And I think did you show the I did? Picture their regarding that. That's what it likely looked like for them as they were taking the runway and their own landing lights were illuminating most of the runway ahead of them. And I guess they're making the argument that they should have noticed that there were no runway edge lights on or end lights..
