BAC 167 Mk88 Strikemaster



Taken at RNZAF Base Woodbourne, April 19, 2000. Looking down into the cockpit from above and forward, showing the general cockpit arrangements around the ejection seats. The seats are Martin-Baker PB4 (PB4/1 port and PB4/2 starboard) and are zero/ninety rated - 90kts because the parachutes do not have a ballistic spreader to open them. Note the ejection seats in this aircraft are not fitted with parachute packs, but 'cushions' are present. Some panel items are also missing, this being an instructional airframe. The yellow object in the top right of the picture is a power box (note the cord), with a music 'source' above. Got to keep those apprentices happy!
