Last month we published a major article describing the development of Martin‐Baker ejection seats on the occasion of 1,000 lives being saved. Based on the successful ejection rate for the previous twelve months, we had estimated in January 1965 that the thousandth life would be saved in May and, in fact, we went to press with the May issue on exactly the same day that Martin‐Baker announced that the figure had been achieved. There is little more to add to our leading article and comments published last month except to congratulate all concerned—and especially Mr James Martin, C.B.E., M.I.Mech.E., F.R.Ae.S., Managing Director and Chief Designer of the Martin‐Baker Aircraft Co. Ltd. (pictured above).
