Ejection Seats and Parachutes

Message 722:
I have attached several pictures, all of which were taken at Edwards AFB in October of 1960, when our scout troop made yet another visit to see these objects of youthful adulation, on Edwards "Open Day". Cheers, Chris

The pictures show the B-70 Valkyrie ejection seat test rig (left) and the F-106 test rig for the Weber seat (right). Note the Weber seat lying horizontally above and behind the rear cockpit. Doc Boink
