those were some nice figures that you ran by everyone, but the data on the G-force was inaccurate.

During a cockpit ejection:

The pilot typically experiences an acceleration of about 12 to 14 g (120 to 140 m/s). Western seats usually impose lighter loads on the pilots; 1960s-70s era ex-Soviet technology often goes up to 20-22 g (with SM-1 and KM-1 gunbarrel type ejection seats).

The most G's anyone has ever withstood was this guy

John Paul Stapp - 46.2 G's
