Perhaps, but worth a bloody good try if you know you have a fundamental loss of thrust and that you’ll be ejecting if you can’t stop!

A true hero and such a gent. Had the honour of meeting him several times and vividly recall him scurrying to the front of PA474 during a visit to RAF Lyneham several years ago.

30 yards away = 90ft
Height = 80ft.
So distance = 121ft away!! 🤔

Perhaps a tad further away if you factor in the length of the garden, but still less than 500ft!
