Spindrift Pilot's Chair from Land of the Giants
Spindrift Pilot's Chair from Land of the Giants (ABC-TV, 1968-70). This pilotís chair is an actual 1960s-era ejection seat from a U.S. Air Force fighter, which has been modified by the studio with custom aluminum side accents and black leather upholstered arm rests for use on the production. Seen in the cockpit of the Spindrift supersonic transport vehicle in many episodes of Land of the Giants. This piece was re-rented to other productions throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s by a Hollywood prop rental house, where it was finally discovered and identified.

Sold for $2,750 at the Profiles in History Hollywood Auction 17, 12th December 2003.
