2) He did not set the ejection mode properly. Normally it two seat aircraft, you can set the ejection seats to fire in three different modes: front seat initiated, rear seat initiated, and independent ejection. It should have been set in the front seat initiated mode, so if the pilot initiates an ejection, it fires the rear seat first, in this mode, if the rear seat initiates and ejection just the rear seat is ejected.
Apparently, this aircraft was in the rear seat initiation mode, so the backseat had control over the ejection. So half a second after the backseat left the aircraft the MDC (miniature detonating cord) shattered the pilot's canopy, but the seat catapult didn't fire. So the pilot had to land a convertable Rafale.
