#1609: RoofRaft

Todays invention is a new form of cockpit canopy for small jets flying over water.

If the crew has to eject, instead of shattering, the canopy rotates under the seat and ejects with it.

The canopy is then jettisoned into the water below and, equipped with buoyancy bags, acts as a durable life raft to which the crew can then swim.
