A giant leap ignored

I enjoyed reading the reproduced articles celebrating 150 years of your publication, especially the great inventions.

I realise that not all landmarks can be included, but note the omission of the ejector seat, developed by Sir James Martin and more latterly the Martin Baker company. Surely something that made the giant leap from jumping out of an aircraft canopy to safe ejection was important enough to be included?
