ACES II Ejection Seats:
This is a genuine ACES II ejection seat from a real F-16
On December 4, 1998, the aircraft crashed 30 miles south
of Fort Summer, New Mexico. The pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Randel Meyer, and the
passenger, Senior Airman Hugo Serrano-Molina, both ejected safely, but with Hugo
breaking his ankle. The aircraft was on an incentive flight as a reward for
Hugo. The aircraft was based at Cannon AFB, New Mexico. Cause of the crash was
engine failure. This F-16 had been involved in a collision on the runway on
January 26th, 1994 at Wright Patterson AFB.
How cool would it be to own a little piece of history? That seat has gone faster than the speed of sound sitting inside of F-16 tail number 87389 -- serving America for nine years! Then, one fine winter's day, the engine quits, and the ACES II ejection seat does exactly what it is supposed to do, rocketing out of the cockpit and saving the pilot's life!
Note that the pics below are in front of a mirror so you can see both sides.
