Aircraft seat ID....?

Recommended Posts

Need more images to possibly identify. Images especially of the back, headrest, and bottom base. I had some orange painted USAF crew seats a few years ago that looked similar. They were flight engineer and/or navigator seats from the C-119, C-124, B-36, and possibly C-97. The seats pictured look similar to the seats that I had, except for the tubular frame on the sides. My guess is that they are USAF seats? Are there any data plates? Will do more research.

Some aircraft possibilities:

 

B-36, B-45, B-47, C-54, C-74, C-97, C-69/C-121, C-82/C-119, C-123, C-124, C-130, C-131, C-133, C-135/707, C-141.

 

The inertia reel lever on the left side of the seat bucket looks to be one from the 1950s-1960s and possibly used later also.

dig it.. I think I can rule out C130 and C141 seats, unless they were different when first developed... I can compare the seat to some in our Museum at DAFB...

 

Thanks for the help North

Look very similar to two seats I once that came from the passenger compartment of an ATC C-45 that had been used as a navigation trainer.

 

Is there an open box on the back to hold charts and check lists?
