Jordanian F-5F ejection seats

Recommended Posts

Huh...... I could have sworn that I read somewhere that the Jordanians used a Martin Baker seat. Looks like a false alarm then. True Details makes a nice early Northrop seat, and Aztec made a decent late seat in 1/72nd scale (which I'm modeling the Jordanian jet in) but the Aztec seat is long out of production, and as far as I know, unfortunately no one has done one since. Not really a suprise I suppose since the F-5 family has been largely neglected in anything except 48th scale. :bandhead2: Thanks, Fred.

The Greeks bought some F-5A/B's from Jordan back in the day. These a/c were fitted with the standard Northrop seat of the time but the Greeks quickly replaced them with the MB Mk10. There are pictures online of the a/c still in their Jordanian cameo scheme wearing Greek markings and the new seats.
