Aermacchi MB339-CB



Taken at Whenuapai, March 17, 2001. Rear cockpit - ejection seat. A general view of the Martin Baker Mk.10L fitted to the MB339. (The colours a bit off as this was the first frame on the film which wasn't wound quite far enough). The rear seat has the command control valve (or chicken switch) which if active will activate the student's seat if the instructor ejects.
