Hello Guys,
I'm trying to identify this F-16 panel marked '3309 Fire Access'.
Seen the rounded shape it should be somewhere on the fuselage body.
Can some one point out the exact location with pictures? Many thanks!
best regards!
:D

IIRC, that panel should be for early A models, right below the JFS. Now that panel is mesh and not solid

The panels numbers are a map of the location. Again IIRC, First number 3 means is from the center of the airframe. Second number determines if it is from the bottom (3) or top (4). Last number is odd (9), means it is from the Left side.
For example 3309 is part of door 3303, which is opposite of door 3304 on the right side.
