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
If anyone has info or photos that would help me fill in the blanks on these two
jets, 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 easier.
