STYLISH CHROME PLATED EJECTION SEAT BY MARTIN BAKER c.1960

A fantastic ejection seat made by Martin Baker made for the Royal Air Force Canberra Jet which were in operation in the early 1960s. This superbly detailed, highly polished ejection seat with bespoke leather seat is now a height adjustable, fully functional chair. The English Electric Canberra was a first generation jet powered light bomber, capable of high altitude flight, making it a perfect tactical nuclear strike bomber. The Canberra was retired from service from the RAF in 2006, 57 years after its first flight.
