Go from zero to Mach 2 without leaving your seat. This artifact is a genuine ejection seat from a 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 steel base with a natural-looking hand-applied weathered finish. A Custom Hangar plaque is affixed to the underside of the base, and a Certificate of Authenticity is included.
