Thanks for sharing, love the zipper.

At the New England Air Museum we have an F-104C, I think that set the absolute world altitude record for the time. Also, a beautifully restored F-4D, F-105 and F-14B. That big cat is the crown jewel of the entire place IMO, and quite a sight to behold. You think the Eagle's big... until you stand next to the F-14. The best view is from the back, where the sheer size of its F-110 motors, "tunnel" between the engines and wing box really stand out.

But the Zipper truly is a sight to behold, and certain features stand out - like the razor sharp, leading edge of the wing! Until you see that, you can't truly understand why it was covered due to the danger to aircrews..
