Re: Re Parachutes
" the assumption that it hadn't been modded with bailing out in mind are both massive unfounded assumptions."
no its not - such a mod couldn't be carried out without structurally weakening that aircraft to the point of making it unsafe. And even if you could exit, you would hit the tail. If you want to avoid that problem, you need an aircraft with a T-tail like a Galaxy, or else a rear ramp exit
