I don't see no plastic bags! What's you talking about! *** What I find interesting is the use of low-tech C-clamps to secure landing gear doors on such a hi-tech plane.

The bomb bay is very large and a very nice view of the main landing gear.

That's a scary sight having those tires in that close proximity to the engine cowlings.

The so called plastic bags are the left and right engine nacelles. You are looking forward into the aft weapons bay. You have a great look at the weapon bay speed brake deployed and that rotary launcher assy just above it. This appears to be one of the flight test birds from Edwards AFB. Note the orange wire along the side walls and the test boxes on the forward bulkhead. Also note the strain gages on the corners of the bay doors.

This plane is my baby. Ive been crewing it since 04. All the answers are spot on as far as the c-clamps go theyre there as a safety precaution to keep the MLG doors from closing on maintenance personel.
