The seat in the harrier is an offshoot of the Martin Baker mk10 seat with 0 0 capability, basically 0 speed 0 ft and at all attitudes relative to the height that is, with 0 speed there is no airflow to force the canopy up and to the rear. Thus the use of the MDC, from pulling the handle to the pilot hanging on his parachute 300 ft higher than the aircraft takes 1.5 seconds. The exception to this rule is if the pilot/seat is inverted or higher than 10,000 ft where the pilot remains with the seat on its emergency oxygen supply. The pilot does have a facility to manually separate from the seat if the point of ejection is in mountainous terrain higher than 10,000 ft.

Older jets that don't have MDC rely on one of 2 methods to scatter the glass/Perspex a spigot fitted to the top of the ejection seat or a steel rod that is fired upwards prior to the main seat gun igniting. 9the harrier uses this method also but attached to the steel rod is the stabilising parachute that 1 stabilises the seat and pulls the main parachute out of the head box.

Cockpit is very good, really amazing, i hope for an upgrade for the Mirage cockpit aswell, a bit more rounded. I would like have the same standard for both AV8B and Mirage. However this AV8B is a must, really amazing. I can't wait.
