Stories I've heard.....

A maintainer survived by crouching/coiling back into the footwell of the pilots cockpit of a Sea Vixen just in time as the ejection seat fired. Was this true?


Someone deliberately flew a Sea Harrier under the Sydney Harbour Bridge (I've heard this loads of times and knew and served with the alleged person involved but is it actually true?).


Someone had part of an ejector seat fired through their eyeball and out the back of their head and still survived......


Any of these true, vaguely true or an outright myth?
