Picked these up today at the local auction...They look like they have the holes for parachute leg straps, and the lower section for a survival kit or life raft...any idea what seat or parachute they are designed for? lower section is filled with foam pad for static display??

 

plan is to flip at least one

Hi John,

 

Looks like the cushions from an MB-2 seat survival kit to me.  Get them for a good price?!

So would this be part of the seat or parachute harness?

There would be a belt on either side of the kit to attach it to your parachute harness.

 

I have an MD-1 seat pan that is very similar.  Here's a photo.  It's complete but was de-milled be removing the zipper :(  It's for my T-33 seat if I ever get back to finishing it...
