Weber T-37 Seat
The T-37 Trainer (Tweety Bird) is still in use as is the ejection seat designed by Weber Aircraft. The seat is an early design with a two stage trigger mechanism. This means the pilot would have to raise the ejection grips and then squeeze the triggers that were uncovered. The basic seat design was adapted for other uses such as the NASA Lifting Body experimental aircraft.
