Boeing F-4 Phantom II Ejection Seat
Before we get started, I should let you know right off the bat that no, you can’t buy an actually functioning ejector seat from Boeing at this time. OK, now that we got that out of the way, this is actually pretty cool: The company is selling actual Boeing F-4 Phantom II Ejection Seats taken from real fighter jets and re-purposed as some next-level furniture to satisfy any aviation nut (or just anybody who likes weird chairs).
Each Boeing F-4 Phantom II Ejection Seat is (or “was,” depending on your opinion) an authentic rocket-assisted ejection seat from an F-4 Phantom II fighter jet, with all the trimmings it had when it was in use, including the seat belt, oxygen tank, release button, and more. There’s also a commemorative Boeing Custom Hangar plaque and it comes with its own certificate of authenticity.
As you have probably guessed, you’re not going to be able to acquire you own Boeing F-4 Phantom II Ejection Seat for cheap. Each unique seat costs $15,000 from the Boeing online store here, but a significantly cheaper option would be to just take another look at the seat up at the top of the page.
