Hello All

  Found this at an F4E site recently.  As i found it near the cockpit debris, i was wondering if it could be part of the ejection seat? More specifically, the barometric sensor that automatically separates the man from the seat at a pre-set altitude?

Thanks for any assists !

Maybe this is not much help but the altitude on the front of the item seems to be be in the ballpark.  The F-4B/N NATOPS manual I have access to gives 14,500 to 11,500ft. as to when the barostat actvates for man/seat separation.  Sorry I don't have access to an F-4E manual.

The 1F-4E-1 has the same range, and shows the airplane to have a Martin Baker Mk. H7 seat.  I found a drawing that shows the barostat, and it makes me think that's what you found. image295.jpg

Jeff - I think thats it man!  The three holes across the center and the holes around the edge are an exact match.
