This article describes a method used by a Special Forces Battalion Medical Section to create a plan for a short-notice deployment. The unit mission included pilot recovery and was therefore intrinsically connected with the delegation of medical care. Initial attention was directed at identifying the types of injuries sustained by pilots ejected from modern jet aircraft. Special Forces medics were then trained to handle these specific injuries. Efforts were additionally directed at refreshing combat medical skills...

From 1981-1997 there were 86 ejections from 56 aircraft within the German Air Force. Of these, 24 accidents were associated with the F-104 Starfighter, 14 with the PA 200 Tornado, 12 from the F-4 Phantom, 5 from the Alpha Jet and 1 from a MiG 29 Fulcrum. One case involved a front seat pilot, who had already sustained fatal injuries from midair collision, being command ejected by the rear seat pilot. The remaining 85 ejections are the basis of this study. One weapons system officer died from hypothermia after landing in the sea and another from bleeding into the medulla oblongata after flailing; all other participants survived...

Ejection from jet aircraft has been exhaustively studied from many perspectives; e.g., causes of ejection, types and causes of ejection injuries, etc. Curiously, no reports exist describing the fate of eyewear in ejections. Many pilots wear required corrective lenses during flight operations, and many wear tinted lenses. What happens to these during ejection? What injuries are a result of the eyewear? What factors can be identified that influence retention of the eyewear and severity of related injury? Do contact lenses provide significant advantages? There were 48 ejections occurring between 1977 and 1990 that involved corrective or tinted lens use that were retrospectively examined using Naval Safety Center records and personal questionnaires...

Virtually any A&E department in the UK may see aircrew who have ejected. The case histories of two pilots who ejected and sustained spinal fractures are presented. Both had minimal back symptoms and walked from the site of landing. All ejectees should be considered to have a spinal fracture until proven otherwise radiographically. Other injuries that these patients may sustain during ejection are also discussed.

In order to contribute to the study of spinal injury after ejection., the author analyzed the results of 100 cases of ejections carried out by military and civil Italian jet pilots in a period of 20 years. Of this group, 47 successfully ejected from aircraft without injury; 11 ejections proved fatal. The remaining 42 pilots sutained vertebral fractures, while 27 sustained other traumatic injuries different from spinal fractures. There were 23 vertebral fractures in 15 pilots and the most frequently affected vertebrae were those of the thoraco-lumbar junction...
