    Hi, gentlemen, I´m looking for a view showing the true lay out of the seatbelts in FW190´s A8.
    I was checking all of my info and can´t view a single pic of the pilot´s seat showing what I need.
    Any pic or link is wellcome, thanks in advance.

    Here's a seat complete with cushion and the lap belts. Fw190 pilots wore back pack parachutes which would rest on the ledge behind them.

    The shoulder straps attached to points on the aft upper cockpit armour,above the seat and infront of and below the armoured head rest. Here they are.

    Finally,in this picture you can see the way the shoulder straps would fall down the seat.

    Hope this helps
