Arthur Harrison live tested a Lockheed C-2 ejection seat fitted with a G.Q. Harness from a Canadian T-33  at Cold Lake in the 1950s

Sqn. Ldr. John "Fifi" Fifield live tested a Martin-Baker ejection seat for the CF-100

 

Ejection tests carried out by CAF from the rear of the CT-133 coded 413

Does anyone remember Arthur Harrison of GQ or Sqn Leader Fifi Fifield of Martin Baker both who performed live tests in Canada -

Arthur on the Lockheed seat and harness and Sqn Ldr Fifield who did the tests from the CF-100 - pilots of the aircraft, mechanics, technicians etc

FEEDBACK

Mr. Bennett,

I was doing a research on birdstrikes through Google and found your website.

Going through the Canadair CF-104 ejections, I found a reference to my
ejection following a bird strike (15 November 1968, 417 Squadron Cold Lake,
Alberta, Canada).  I viewed the whole information as I knew many of the
pilots that ejected from the CF-104.

In Germany, I was with 439 Squadron, 1 Wing Lahr.   Capt. Redge E. White who
was on that same Squadron ejected on 25 April 1969.  There are 2 photos next
to his information and you ask "Which photo is correct?"...the bottom one!

I perused most of your site...very interesting!!

Should you require more information, do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,

Serge Lemire

FEEDBACK
 

While doing some research for an article for the next issue of FrontLine Defence (http://www.frontline-canada.com) on the merits of single versus twin engines for the next fleet of Canadian fighters, I stumbled across http://www.ejection-history.org.uk. There seems to be a hole in the CF-104 Starfighter chronology.

In Janauary, 1969, as an Edmonton-based reporter with The Canadian Press wire service, I was visiting Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake in Alberta. While I was actually in the radar room, the return from one Starfighter in a three-aircraft section disappeared from the screen during a routine night training mission over the nearby Primrose Lake Weapons Testing Range. Lieutenant R. B. Kaiser of Victoria, British Columbia, had reported "fuel problems" and said he was dropping to a lower altitude to burn off excess before returning to base. The two other aircraft opted to return to CFB Cold Lake. Kaiser's body was found near the wreckage the following morning; I never did find out whether he had attempted to eject or simply flown it into the ground. At any rate, his squadron commander, Lieutenant-Colonel Kenneth Thorneycroft, had this assessment of the situation: "Putting it bluntly, the thing glides like a brick shithouse." Kaiser's last communication with the base had him descending through 1,500 feet. "The only thing a pilot can do when his airspeed drops . . . at that altitude is get the hell of of the airplane," Thorneycroft said.

Hope this is useful.

FEEDBACK


A German website, in memory of a family that lost
their lives in a tragic accident May 22nd, 1983 in
Frankfurt/Main, Germany. The Pilot of a Canadian CF
104 -G, 439th Fighter Squadron "The Tigers" from
Baden - Söllingen, Germany, lost control and pulled
the aircraft away from the airport to let it crash
into the forrest. Unfortunately it crashed onto a
street going through the forrest, and right into a car
with this family.
The pilot though, 27 year old (at the time of the
accident) Captain Alan Stephenson ejected and
survived... So he should be mentioned on your site.

Regards,
Andre G. Kroeger
