    Sara Shabnam's biography of Sir James Martin is by far the best source for the MB.5 and other Martin-Baker projects, as well as lots of details on the ejector seat business.

    Hi Ian to cut a long story short absolutely any information on the aircraft would be very much appreicated alot more than what I have got but the construction of it a description of some of the features would be a great start.

    If you can track it down there's a good article, including a cutaway, on the M.B.5 in Air International February 1979.
