Lockheed T-33 Ejection Seat

These photos of T-33 seats come from Mark Verbeek. He took them in a museum. The Lockheed T-33 was equipped with this seat. It is typical of the early USAF seats with its armrests and loop style ejection handles. The seat was modified several times over its career, and the one shown appears to be one of the ones with all the later features.
