You can now own a piece of aircraft history in your living room. This artifact is a genuine DC-9 Pratt & Whitney Jt8D engine cowling that has been converted into a luxury chair. McDonnell Douglas produced more than 976 DC-9 twin-engine jetliners between 1965 and 1982, including 47 C-9 aircraft for military customers. The last of these venerable airliners in regular passenger service retired in 2014.
This engine cowling was removed from a retired DC-9 and used for the base of sleek chair. It was stripped of paint, and polished in multiple steps to achieve a mirror finish. The seat is upholstered in high-quality black leather with stitching that echoes the shape of the rotor blades that once spun inside the engine. The seat and back cushion are removable, and the front of the chair is trimmed in black leather. Certificate of Authenticity is included in the special price of $7,650 which is available until December 31st. The regular price is $8,500.
