    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    Ejection seat from 50 year old B-52 crash found in Maine

    Seat from 1963 B-52 crash found in Maine | Fox News

    GREENVILLE, MAINE A Maine forest ranger stumbled upon an eerie find while hunting that has been identified as an ejection seat from a B-52 bomber that crashed nearly 50 years ago.

    The B-52 Stratofortress-C crash is infamous -- seven U.S. Air Force airmen were killed. The seat most likely helped save either the pilot or navigator, officials said.

    Yeah,it has 6. The pilot and copilot, the rear gunner, and the electronic warfare officer eject through hatches in the roof, the radar navigator and the navigator eject from the bottom. That is the G model, and the only one I know about.
    I assume the C model is the same.

    Well I would have gotten a pickup truck, tossed it in the back and drove right out to Vegas and see what Pawn Stars would give me for it

But the seller would still come out ahead because everything on that B52 was so grossly overpriced.
