Engine failed over the Avon Range. Aircraft was low altitude and speeds greater than Mach so pilot pulled back on stick to gain altitude. After several unsuccessful attempts to re-light the engine, the pilot was forced to eject. It is suspected, not confirmed, that the aircraft ingested a bird. The remains of the aircraft were returned to base for investigation.
