"Well, the pilot that used great skill in recovering his
aircraft, he will be in the air almost immediately. The other
pilot, well it depends on the extent of his back injuries. So I
can't tell you when he's likely to be back. But all I will say is
that every time we have an ejection, a pilot will spend a little
bit of time on the ground to allow his back to recover."
