Hot Seat



Ejection Seat Video Back before there were zero-zero ejection seats. (check this one too)

Ejecting from a jet aircraft (in flight or from the deck) is no small thing.


Rigid Seat Survival Kit

I know that they sell ejection seats and one day, when I'm worth a bundle, I will buy one for my man cave as a conversation piece (without the solid propellant rockets).

  1. They've saved many a life. Sadly it took years to actually get a zero zero seat that worked. I don't recognize that one pictured! Lockheed? I know it's not an MB.

  2. Or... you could leave the rockets intact and make changing the bulbs in the ceiling light fixture more of an adventure!

    1. OR - just put it under a skylight!

  3. Double check the seat before putting it in the den.

    1. Saftey's on? You know that my grandsons would just have to pull the D-Ring.

  4. Interesting. I didn't know there were survival kits in there, but it makes sense.

    1. Since I wasn't a stick and rudder man, I never had to survive on them, but I plucked a corpse and a live person (F-101 recon crew) from a bad place after they ejected and "survival" is the key word.
