A visitor from Canada posted Sun April 7, 2013:
I've actually managed to scrounge up the Flight Safety report on this. The student inadvertently placed a piece of his ALSE equipment on the CFS firing circuit, and upon closing the canopy, set the system off.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri March 12, 2010:
This is a common'ish problem, whilst with No.4FTS at Valley and later Brawdy it was practice for handlers to crouch behind the right wing whilst we closed the canopy...

A visitor from Canada posted Wed October 21, 2009:
The seat did not fire. It is still in the plane.

A visitor from Ireland posted Wed October 14, 2009:
Did the ejector seat go off accidently. One did on a Slovenian Air Force Pilatus PC9 at 10,000 feet recently!

A visitor from Canada posted Wed September 23, 2009:
It appears that this canopy operated as advertised!
