Just noticed these pictures in the db. There is a section of fuselage abeam the prop blade which is painted white, while the rest of it is greenish primer (except, presumably, composite parts). The picture on the right seems to show a raised area on the fuselage at the same place, however that is painted the same primer as the rest. My questions :
- Does that area have additional strengthening to protect the passengers in the event of a blade-out?
- Why have they been painted white in one case, and primer in another?
Thanks in advance
