Martin-Baker 3KS1 first pilot's ejection seat. This is a 3KS1 Mk2 and of an earlier standard to the Vulcan's ultimate 3KS Mk4. The co-pilot's seat was the 3KS2. The series 3 seats were heavy and fitted to all the V bombers, the Mk1 Vulcan receiving the 3K. The 3KS (S = star) introduced the combined harness and horseshoe parachute pack as fitted to the lightweight series 4 seats.
