    Can anyone identify the parts in this pic? Two four blade props, something that looks like a rocket but is actually a drop tank, and more?

    The script on the drop tank says "Mirage III-R". Maybe...

    The "Blue Max" restaurant that used to be in the terminal building at Boeing Field in Seattle had ex-airline seats in their waiting area, and along one wall was a row of seats for diners that were obviously once jet-fighter ejection seats!

    Yes, very nice. Tho mine would be a bit more rustic. And for the used parts, more patina instead of shine.

    Thanks for the comments, but can anyone ID the props?

    And yes, this was in southern France, in an antique shop in L'Isle sur la Sorgue. Very picturesque and beautiful.
