BSC06639

The seat harness, also original on this machine, is of Type QS. This type of harness was introduced as standard in 1946 and could be found in many post-war RAF aircraft.

Note also the three white oxygen bottles visible in the area behind the seat. The long-range PR Spitfire required correspondingly large supply of oxygen. This arrangement of oxygen supply was another unique feature of the PR Spitfires.
