When at Leeming I was called onto the scene of a JP crash (1968?) in which the solo student pilot was killed. (Ejected too low). The aircraft wreckage was surrounded by a ring of dead cows most on their back with legs in the air apparently killed by the shock of the impact in their midst so seeing the photo in that news cutting of a heifer licking an ejection seat implies the herd were some distance away. The top section of the ejection gun is lying next to the seat so at that point it has been disconnected from the seat by someone.
