The front nose section of the shuttle carrier aircraft #2. She is work horse hence there are very little creature comforts remaining from her days as a JAL aircraft. Here you see some of the few seats and wall panels on board. The wallpaper is still JAL like the seats and carpet. The rest of the aircraft is stripped to the bare frame to conserve weight. The boxes are supplies that were hastly moved to allow the public troop through the main cabin as she sat on the ground.
