Things of particular interest in this area:
(Press "Back" on your browser to return to this list.)

1/    There are numerous openings, drains, vents and view ports around the engine area. (Photo 1, Photo 5)

2/    There is a large (about 1cm or so) gap between the fuselage and where the wing joins it underneath the fuselage, in front of the wheel wells. This has a rounded rubber strip in it to seal the gap but it is very noticeable. The rear joint doesn't show this. (Photo 3 The nose is to the top of this photo.)

3/    The leading edges of the nose, ECS inlets and the engine intakes are painted with a rubberized anti abrasive coating which has a slightly darker and greener appearance to the base colour. (Photo 2, Photo 4, Photo 6, Photo 7, Photo 9, Photo 10, Photo 13)

4/    There are two small antennae mounted on a thin, raised section under the rear LHS of the fuselage behind the wing. (Photo 5, Photo 11, Photo 12)

5/    The area around and behind the APU exhaust can become quite stained. (Photo 8, Photo 13)

6/    There is a small orange light on the upper LHS of the mid fuselage, just down from the yellow blade antenna. (Photo 7, Photo 9, Photo 13)
