An interesting fact concerning the XF-92A (nee XP-92A) is that its ejection seat was removed from another Convair experimental aircraft (the XP-81) for use in the XF-92A. The XF-92A incorporated a number of 'off-the-shelf' components, many of which were borrowed from other Convair aircraft. As far as I am aware, this ejection seat is still in the surviving specimen of the XF-92A that is in storage awaiting restoration at the USAF Museum. The aircraft that the XF-92A's seat came from (the compound propulsion XP-81 prop-jet, of which only two examples were built) ended up being dumped ingloriously out onto the Edwards Photo Test Range, where it languished for many years until the USAF Museum belatedly reclaimed it from Edwards' outback. A few years ago USAFM's Research Division's Dave Menard contacted me, asking for information on what sort of seat the YP-81 had been fitted with. By the time I was able to get back to Dave with this information, Dave had officially retired after many years of dedicated work with that facility. My efforts to contact someone in Research Division who would take note of this requested information repeatedly failed (no one would return my email inquiries); I still wonder if USAFM is aware of the interconnectedness of the XF-92A and their YP-81. in this context! Or if they even care anymore?
