Aircraft number ten-oh-four from Barksdale AFB Louisiana. Built in 1961 I think. 53 years old. Look at that weird geometry during landing gear retraction? Hey look, the forward end of the weapons bay is as far aft as the aft spar of the wing. The wing is actually forward of the weapons bay. Must be a weight and balance thing.

The forward end of the weapons bay is close to the aft spar at the ROOT of the wing, but given that the wing is highly swept, I suspect the location of the mean aerodynamic chord of the wing and the CG of the bay is close.

Great shot of a hard subject. Also, don't forget that "telescopic compression" really affects how we can judge depth and location of objects relative to one another in a photo where any telephoto lens is used. It "compacts" everything close together. It's obvious the photographer used some very heavy glass.
