Escape the office in Royal Navy ejector seat
When It’s Gone, It’s Gone)
If you’re behind on your reports and your boss is breathing down your neck, one of these might come in handy.
A British company lists this Martin Baker Mk6 ejector seat–which has been outfitted with a stainless steel frame so it can be used anywhere–as being for sale.
Once part of a Blackburn Buccaneer fighter jet, the seat still has its parachutes, harness, and eject levers.
The original seats even came with personal survival packs that included life rafts.
The seat was used in a Buccaneer in Britain’s Royal Navy and Royal Air Force from back in the 1960s, according to the listing, which adds that “rockets are present–including pitch rockets–minus cartridge and propellant.”
Well, maybe you can improvise on that. The company is apparently entertaining offers for the seat.
