Photo of the interior of the center section tank of a 747-100, used at the public hearing into the TWA 800 crash, believed to have been caused by exploding fuel vapors in the almost empty center section tank.

This picture is of an L-1011 wing fuel tank. The wing was being dismantled for spare parts when the picture was taken. In the picture you are looking forward at the front spar. Portions of the rear spar and upper and lower skin have already been removed. Visible is a small section of the rear spar, the tank webs that prevent the fuel from sloshing about, some stringers and a wire bundle for the tank probes along with some tank plumbing.

What are you looking for, specifically? I can narrow my search a lot if you've got a specific goal in mind.
People talk about going inside the fuel tanks to do this-or-that task, so I began to wonder what it looked like in there. And I figured that if any group of people in the world could show me pictures, it was here.
