Correct. the Cheetah C was fitted with the Martin-Baker JM6 ejection seat.

See http://www.saairforce.co.za/the-airforc ... /cheetah-c :wink:

The seat in your "Spotty" pic, is the Mk6, it just doesn't have the parachute pack/assembly, compared to the pic I posted from 2007.

Danie, the simulator you are referring to, is for the Cheetah B's. If my memory serves me correct, it even has a dummy serial number in yellow #863 behind the cockpit, in sequence with the Cheetah B serial numbers.

Nice work so far :smt023

Cheers,
John

'863' is known as the Cheetah Operational Flight Trainer, representing the front cockpit of the 'dual seat aircraft' operated by 89 Combat FS.

It is not a Cheetah C simulator :wink: The 'C'-sim at AFB LT is a 'dome' sim.

Hi everyone

Now that looks very good! Please post a update if you get her installed into a Cheetah C!!

Kremlin... UnrulyGaeb is going to beat you to a Cheetah C profile. How about a friendly completion to see who finishes his first \:D/ :smt023

Cheers
