Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

If the handle hasn't been pulled, ths chute should not be locked in and it should disappear in the jet exhaust.
