If I’m not mistaken, these guys (MotoArt) are the same ones that were featured in DiscoveryChannel
‘s “Wing Nuts.”
You’re not mistaken, it’s them. I miss that show, crazy as it was.
The chair shown in the photo isn’t from a B-52 ejection seat. They have more of a square-shaped back. They don’t come to a point like this one. This one looks too flimsy to even be an ejection seat.
Bentcorner, yeah — the B52 chairs are elsewhere on the site.
I watched the series for a while…wish I could justify the expense as they do some cool shit.
as an indicator of what their prices run look at the following
the “AquaBomb” (which I learned watching the show started out as an attempted Lava Lamp) sells for $3950.00
so figure 4x that for a cowling desk…at least.
My FIL sells aircraft salvage…used to have literal tons of this stuff lying aroun. The bomb bits always looked like rockets to me, so I had this fantasy about making a marvin-the -martian style playground…
