L’incident aurait pu être fatal. Le 20 mars 2019, lors d’un vol de démonstration, le passager civil d’un avion de chasse Rafale est éjecté pendant la montée de l’avion, quelques secondes après le décollage. L’incident a blessé légèrement ce passager qui a atterri avec le parachute de secours dans l’enceinte de la base tandis que le pilote a pu poser l’avion malgré la verrière éjectée. Le passager, un homme de 64 ans, avait été conduit aux urgences de Saint-Dizier.

The official report on the incident was issued only six days ago. Here’s a link for those who read French, although there are also videos/photos that are probably worth more than 1000 words in any language:
