My guess is that when the rockets under his seat fired and he suddenly found himself over 300 feet away from the PC-7 Mk II he was riding in, he probably realized the error of his ways.

That's right, a passenger joyriding over South Africa with an experienced Silver Falcons air display team pilot steadied himself during an aerobatic maneuver by grabbing the ejection seat handle between his legs. Fortunately for him, ejection seats are fairly idiot proof—the chute opens automatically and he glided back to Earth unharmed. [Telegraph Image via Flickr]
