Imagine it: you’re piloting a jet and something goes wrong. You know you’re in trouble. What do you do? Do you engage the ejection seat? How do those seats work anyway?

    I would engage because it is better to do that than cost your life as people say you only live once

    You eject yourself by pulling on the handles above your head and a sheet falls over you (Because of the wind) and the seat gets pushed up then the parachute opens up and hopefully you’re over land!:)I would eject!
