Collision with Skyraider at Duxford during airshow back in April.

"Doll" was lost, but pilot bailed without injury at about 800'. Skyraider was able to recover and land with a partial wing.

Absolute bummer but the pilot seems lucky to bail so low and be OK.

Realized I have an old screenshot contest entry circa 2006, taken in CFS3 with that particular aircraft's livery...

Does the pilot still qualify for a Martin Baker tie?
Or is that only for ejector seats?
