.Millions?

$$$,$$$,$$$

Millions of dollars

Oh ok. Makes sense.

Cool video!

@SpeedbirdOne, @CPKJ is right. F-16 are millions of dollars. Millions could also be referred to as the amount of tears shed.

Or the amount of paperwork that will have to get done after he is ejected and the aircraft is lost.

That too. But he was unconscious. Unless there is a program that ejects the pilot in an emergency, he would have gone down with the plane.

It sounded like it was a training exercise. I’d imagine if they have an automatic recovery system, they must have some kind of automatic ejection system that is armed when they’re training. Hey, it’s classified so it’s all just a theory.
