Unfortunately it didn't fly through on the two days I was there.

Look for Edward Sarber on facebook...he caught it with a very nice top side shot.

Take a look at the station 7 pylon, it shows an annoying problem we sometimes have when dropping GBUs ,the wing release lanyard will occasionally break in the wrong spot. The lanyard has a shear link that is supposed to break after the wings are deployed, but sometimes the cable breaks closer to the bomb, leaving a long piece of cable to smack the side pylon and remove the paint. Especially annoying when it happens to a UHG pylon,that paint is expensive. A redesigned shear link has been made, but we still have a surplus of the old ones, and they are still allowed to be used. :bang:

Interesting info...I was sad that the yellow kind of stands out in the shots since he came through in really nice light. What about the yellow T up by the canopy?

That "T" looks like a local primer touch up. Maybe some fasteners were replaced in that area. Theres another yellow patch just aft along the canopy sill.
