I saw a show called Pawnstars, It's a show where people bring odd things into a pawn shop to pawn/sell. One of the items was an ijector seat from a fighter plane. The guy bought it at a yard sale. He owned it for several years but the best part it was still armed If he or anyone else had pulled the red handle they would have been promptly shot through the roof of there house.

My question first was that real? If I had something like that I bought for an odd reason I expect at some point in time I or someone close to me would have pulled the red handle. The guy had no clue it was armed ejector seat, thought it had been used......so what prevented him or someone from pulling the red handle over several years

If you say he checked it out and knew better, you would be wrong, he had no clue, he thought it was spent and didn't know it was armed.

Back on point, If I eject from an airplane, burn the cloths I'm wearing because they will all be covered in Shzt

Blue Angels - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I haven't seen them in years, but they were very impressive when i did see them.

I don't know much about planes either, mainly only that i like them MUCH better from a distance.

lol, thanks for the laugh.

i would have lost my mud too, then been ok when the parachute deployed, then lost it again when they told me how much it would cost to replace a cockpit and re-arm an ejector seat.

that can't be cheap.....

I wonder if you could use them rockets on say a bicycle or vespa? Worlds fastest vespa 75 mph with an extra kick from the SRB's strapped to the side of it.

If one can indeed be had at a yard sale or pawn shop, and I can find it, you can bet the farm my next purchase is an Astin Martin, you can bet I'm installing it, and you can bet I'm legally changing my name to Bond.

That would be so effin epic.

Yellow Booking pawn shops now.

Record that phone call. Speak with a British accent, too! I wanna hear you ask for an armed ejection seat...

Does nobody remember the Darwin award winner who put a SRB (of some type for cargo planes on short runways) in the trunk of an impala & then became one with a mountain a few miles away. That would've been one helluva ride & i'd bet the driver was thinking he should've had a ejector seat. edit* http://darwinawards.com/darwin/darwin1995-04.html was confirmed bogus.

IIRC from that episode of Pawnstars, i'm fairly sure the shop didn't buy the seat from dude.

Looks impressive man, they must have been amazing to see. The RAAF acrobatics team are propellor driven which is why I thought they all were; for comparison: Roulettes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Saw them go through their paces at Richmond Air Force base once, along with the ever crowd-pleasing Spitfire (just love that throaty growl) and a C-5 Galaxy transport was also there, your fine countrymen waving ello from the cockpit Astounding how many tanks you can fit in one of those things!
