Martin-Baker ejector seats




Description

An essential piece of kit in any modern military aircraft, this image shows a pair of Martin-Baker ejector seats, the likes of which have saved many an aircrews' life since their invention in the mid 1940's. The seat on the left was fitted in an RAF Jet Provost 2-seat basic jet trainer aircraft. The on on the right is from a Bristol Buccaneer low-level strike aircraft.
