Martin Baker have made the industry standard ejector seats for as long as anyone in the aviation field can remember. This one is heading to auction at Artcurial, which makes this a pretty rare opportunity.

The auctioneers don't offer too much info on the seat, which realistically would only be important if you were planning on using it to escape awkward situations in a hurry. For what it's worth, engineers that I've spoken to that have worked on these advise that the earlier models will most likely take your knees off.

Estimated value is €2,000-4,000 which could make it a great value potential museum piece.
