This suggests that most ejection seats are kept active where possible, but if they cannot be kept live, it does not prev...

Sad news.

From images on the news in the UK, it looks like the aircraft has gone into other parked aircraft, presumably following problems on the take off run. Harriers, a German Tornado and an F-15 from Lakenheath could all be seen in various shots close to the incident.
