As a USAF civilian aero-engineer I was allowed to Fly in an OV-10A in the early 1980s to diagnose a left landing gear retraction-extension issue that ONLY occurred in-flight. This issue was CND during every imaginable ground-check. Prior to my first flight [in the rear ejection seat], the pilot bri...Jump to post

Similar thing happened on an F-14D years ago. In this case the ejectee was a surface warfare officer on familiarization flight.
