WIGIG’s first item
When It’s Gone It’s Gone first started with this Ejector Seat Office Chair – unique, uncommon and as it turned out, highly desirable! Here’s our first listing in it’s entirety:
Martin Baker Mk6 ejector seat, originally used in a Royal Navy Buccaneer, fitted with a stainless steel frame transforming it into the unique seat it is today! Complete with original ‘chutes, harness and eject handles, the seat is guaranteed to turn heads in the office or look great at home!
The Mk.6MSB was fitted to the Buccaneer jet used by both RAF and Royal Navy. This seat in particular was fitted to XV157 which flew first with the Royal Navy from ’66, including operating from the aircraft carrier HMS Eagle (where its was coded 107/E) and RAF squadrons from ’69. XV157 was sadly scrapped in ’91, at which point this seat was removed and converted to a training seat.
The ejector seat has been kept in its original authentic condition to preserve its’ history; parts are original to the chair, including straps, parachute, seat cushion and handles. Paintwork has been kept as the original, and the seat features some scars. Rockets are present – including pitch rockets – minus cartridge and propellant.
WIGIG – Marketplace for the uncommon.
