I too flew U2 last week and saw the same thing. Here's a shot I took that shows it as well;

Seen on the right side so side has no difference.


Take care,

That is actually not the number 2 but the location for attaching a lifting hook. The symble looks like a question mark with an underscored bottom. They are hard to see on the ExpressJet Embraer, but if you look on the nacelle you can see them in yellow.

I agree with EMBQA. These markings locate the hoist kit attachment points.
This job sucks!!! I love this job!!!

If you look there are actually 3 locations. (One centered on the trailing edge) This is so if the flap needs to be removed it can be done so with a hoist. Using these three locations will the mechanics the balance points, and the flap can be easily removed.
