I think the rules for formation flying are for Air Traffic Control to track a formation as one flight [that of the formation leader only] with the other formation members being invisible to ATC [squawking “standby"].

The reasoning being that only the formation members themselves are responsible for visually maintaining their separation relative to each other rather than ATC which is normally the case.

This is just me, but I can't imagine the responsibility of ejecting from an expensive rocket/bomb headed for who knows where. I don't think it's up to the pilots disgression though.

He's got the eject lever, so I guess he has some say in the matter. But I'll tell you if I was flying something that just had a wing shot off by a missile, I wouldn't ask mother may I.

100%, no rush at all. I'm curious what caused it, but with some of Bob's history there I guess it's not totally uncommon to have malfunctions which make the pilot eject before the plane is really in a critical situation.
