M-B Meteor back in ejection seat test action


In early June, Martin-Baker Aircraft’s Meteor T7 WA638 carried out the first live ejection seat test to have been conducted by either of the company’s modified Meteors for eight years. The high-altitude test (pictured above) was undertaken out of Martin-Baker’s airfield at Chalgrove, Oxfordshire. It was proclaimed to be “a huge success”.

For the second year running, both of the M-B Meteors, WA638 and sister ship WL419, will be appearing together in the static display at the RNAS Yeovilton Air Day, held this season on Saturday 7 July. One of them will also be seen in the Royal International Air Tattoo’s RAF 100 static park the following weekend.
