Product Details

Get all fired up in the comfort of your own home or office. This artifact is a genuine ejection seat from a legendary McDonnell F-4 Phantom II fighter jet. The two-seat F-4 twinjet was one of the most versatile fighters ever built. It boasted top speeds more than twice the speed of sound and became the U.S. Navy's fastest, highest flying, and longest range fighter. Both the Navy Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds flight demonstration teams flew the F-4 from 1969 to 1973. This Mk.7 rocket-assisted ejection seat, built by British manufacturer Martin-Baker Aircraft Co. Ltd., has been professionally cleaned and refurbished and riveted to a sturdy 3/16" rolled-steel base with a natural-looking hand-applied blackened-metal finish. 

A Custom Hangar plaque is affixed to the underside of the base, and a Certificate of Authenticity is included. Each piece is unique, and actual seat may vary slightly from photograph. Measures 22"W x 43"D x 57"H. Weighs approximately 200 lb. Made in USA. *NOTE: This artifact is sold as is with no guarantee that parts maintain original function. Not for flight use.*
