Left front fuselage and wing root of the F-84E at USAF Museum, Dayton, Ohio. Note stencils, wing-root panel and rivet arrangement, and width variation of canopy brace straps. Note also that the canopy brace straps are white, not silver. These fiberglass straps would normally be quite clean and white on actively maintained aircraft or restored aircraft such as this one, but would tend to collect grim if not maintained. Bruce Craig.
