Footnotes

  • The Martin-Baker Mk.7 is a British rocket-assisted ejection seat, designed and built by Martin-Baker. Introduced in the mid-1960's, the Mk.7 has been installed in combat aircraft worldwide. The Mk.7 seat was developed from the earlier Mk.5 design by the addition of a rocket pack to enable 'zero-zero' capability.

    Other Martin Baker Mk 7A ejector seats can be seen on display at the RAF Museum Hendon, London and RAF Museum Cosford.
