^ Thank you for the info. I was not aware of yesterday's incident.

Fatima Tariq ejection from FT-7 mentioned in this topic happened in January 2012.

Fatima Ali ejection from F-7 mentioned on Martin-Baker website also happened in January 2012. The information on Martin-Baker website apparently got added last month (March 2018).

So, I thought both were same incident with change in pilot's surname.
