Warren McAllister P-51D / T-6 pilots seat


Recommended Posts

I just finished up my restoration of this seat. I bought it from a guy restoring a P-51 C. He had found the correct seat and let this go. I color matched an original T-6 rear seat I have. This was missing most of the nuts and bolts that hold it together. I found period correct 1940's-50's aircraft bolts and lock nuts at that aircraft scrap yard I posted before. The lap belt is early post war nylon with the box X stitching. The seat is the later rivet construction seat back.

Interested in all items relating to the 7th AAF, especially those of the VLR P-51 Pilots of the 15th, 21st, and 506th Fighter Groups.
