While Martin-Baker has been displaying its wares here at Le Bourget, the UK-based firm's ejection seats have saved two more lives in Spain.

On Monday, two Spanish air force pilots banged out of a Casa 101 aircraft at San Javier airport in the Murcia region of Spain after developing technical problems, said the UK's Aerospace, Defence and Security Industries (ADS) association, of which Martin-Baker is a member.

This incident brings the number of lives saved by Martin-Baker products to 7,360, it added. This figure spans 93 air forces.
