That was a GPS antenna when I worked on them. 88-0445 is a test bird at Edwards AFB. ++Invalid serial number++ Orange indicates "test" equipment on the middle antenna and the two smaller ones.... who knows? You see a lot of off the wall stuff on test birds. I guy I worked with was stationed at Eglin AFB, Fl during the late 70's in the test wing and had a Cruise Missle strapped to the belly of his F-4 to test the missle's navigation system.
