Martin-Baker
 

I was the pilot of an F-14 that had a catastophic engine failure resulting in extreme internal aircraft damage and fire leading to the aircraft departing controlled flight. The departure was completely incapacitating to both myself and the RIO inhibiting our attempts to initiate ejection. I was able to get a hold of the lower ejection handle and we both survived.
