"In real life, 20% of aircraft ejections result in the pilot sustaining career-ending injuries, such as death."

No, really?

What is the pilot saying in the picture? Looks like it's censored out.

The distinction between aircrew and paratroopers makes a lot more sense when you think about it terms of combatant vs noncombatant. The paratroops, when they land, will be effective combatants. The aircrew however, without their craft, are now pretty harmless.

Yeah, I was just wondering if it's worth leaving that note in. It's not that counter-intuitive, when you give it a moment's thought. An ejected pilot is probably unarmed, may well be wounded, and doesn't have any supplies or backup, and the one thing they've been trained to do has just been taken away from them. The only thing they have in common with a paratrooper is the parachute.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
