The Convair F-106 Delta Dart was equipped with this
seat designed by Weber Aircraft. It was a replacement for a
seat known as the Convair Rotational 'B' seat. That seat was designed specifically
to address many of the high speed ejections. This one was optimized for the lower speed,
and zero-zero applications. It was the first and only seat
man-rated for zero-zero applications by a United States company.
Although most later seats were capable of zero-zero use, they were not human tested for that.
