Yeovilton ejection fatality

I was there and can confirm that a RAF Harrier pilot was killed. Can't confirm the date.
Just remember seeing a body thrown into the air like a rag doll, and then realising it was an accident. Horrible.
I seem to recall that the reason was given as the pilot was not paying attention, being in a probable state of semi euphoria after his display.
