I've been a Phantom Phanatic for a number of years and I always wanted an Ejection Seat
from the Phabulous Phantom. In January 2000 I was fortunate to obtain my first. A MB
Mk-H7. An AFT seat from F-4G 69-0286. While obtaining pieces that the seat was missing, I
thought I would do some research on the aircraft it came out of and attempt to collect as
many photos of her that I could during her operational life. The results were both pleasing
and surprising. 0286 was assigned to the 52 TFW, 81 TFS during Desert Storm and was
credited with 8 radar site kills ranking second in radar site kills! You can view my research
result and photos on the '69-0286 OPERATIONAL HISTORY' page.
In January 2001 I obtained another MB Mk-H7. An AFT seat from F-4G 69-7300. While I left
the seat from 0286 in original condition, I decided to restore this seat to new condition.
While doing this I did the same research on the aircraft it came out of. The results were
pleasing but it wasn't the War Veteran that 0286 was. It did serve in Desert Storm but had no
radar site kills to it's credit. I have not been able to find many photos of her during her
operational life. You can view my research result and photos on the '69-7300 OPERATIONAL
HISTORY' page. Seat restoration photos can be found on the '69-7300 SEAT RESTORATION'
If anyone has info or photos that would help me fill in the blanks on these two aircraft,
please contact me. Thanks in advance. Henry
My two MB Mk-H7 Ejection seats. Stands
are built out of square seamless steel tubing
with heavy duty casters. Casters are a must!
These seats complete weigh close to 300
pounds so the casters make moving to
clean them and the area around them much
