Tragic. Very tragic. Based on the little bit that I've read about this it sort of mimics green ramp. Busy and crowded tarmac + downed plane = bad news...

My father experienced Green Ramp for himself. This definitely sounds like Green Ramp.

“the canopy came off”, but “ejection was not observed”
Can someone educate me: is ejecting from an F16 (or any fighter in general?) a 2-move or a 1-move action?
* 2-move: the pilot needs to make 2 actions: (1) dump canopy (2) eject seat
* 1-move: only 1 move for the pilot: pull the handle and canopy will come off and seat will eject.
In the latter case: could the quote at the beginning indicate a malfunction? Or is there always soe delay between the canopy coming off and the seat ejecting. In this case, the crash would have happened during that delay?
