Talara, Peru
2nd Lt. Roque A. Garcia-Guillern

The details of 2nd Lt. Roque A. Garcia-Guillern's use of the North American designed ejection seat at very low level meant he had to decide on a certain course of action. He chose to not use his parachute.

Read the amazing ejection story  on Jim Griffiths website by clicking on the photograph of the pilot. Thanks Jim for allowing me permission to link to story and to include a copy of 2nd Lt. Garcia-Guillern's photograph on this website
