    Default Martin Baker Book with ejection list

    All

    I have been trying to find the name of. Book on Martin Baker ejection seats which has a listing of ejections in it as an appendices

    Does this ring any bells with anyone ?

    I know it May be a few years old so if I need it it may have to go down the second hand book list but I am
    Sure I have seen references to this before

    I have been trying to google it and I know there are a couple of books on Martin Baker but I cannot find any index

    I May be imagining it but I donít think so my recollection on these sort of things is usually quite good

    Hope someone can help

    Many thanks

    Paul, I think I have this book at home - I acquired it as part of a collection that was bequeathed to me by a former squadron member some years ago. If I have, you'd be welcome to it, it's outside of my field of research.

    All the best,

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)

    Thanks for the link, I was aware that MB had put up some of their stories but I am am afraid not all 7000 !
