Photo Comment

Arrived at AMARG from the 412th Test Wing at Edwards AFB during Sept. 04 and is stored with the PCN/Inventory No. AACA0144. The starbord leading edge and engine pylons/nacelles are painted black to avoid reflections when the plane was being used for astrographic tests (unfortunately not visible in this shot).
