Great shot! I'm surprised to see so much warping on the skin behind the wing...

It's an awesome photo. I had no idea there was that much involved in equipment test and evaluation. Shows where some of the dollars go.

Living near KPMD, I've seen this aircraft, and it is by far the most unique looking aircraft I've ever seen flying into or out of there. Awesome photo Brian!

Interesting "Ram's Horn" configuration for a 757.

Great photo....I think I see the emergency air scoops open on the belly fairings. Maybe the aircraft is unpressurized. That could explain why the skin is wrinkled aft of the wing like that. Sure don't look right.

Interesting looking plane. Maybe the wrinkles behind the wing are there on purpose to create disrupted airflow on the skin of the aircraft before the scoop.

I think those wrinkles are for launching sonobuoys

Excellent shot. As for the warping on the skin behind wings, it's simply all that collagen left over from all the plastic surgery the 'cat' had.
