    That reminded me of this photo of the Navy's Terrorist Catch and Release experiments.

    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    It seems strange that the back seat ejected first? There was enough time to clear it before the back one ejected. There's a risk of the front seat hitting the back pilot as he ejects. You can see it pass behind his chute, a few feet over and it kills #2 pilot. "Congratulations! You escaped the crash... but died from a seat to the head!" Maybe it's the angle but it looks pretty lined up to me.
