Sweep of the interior of the skirt section.

Picture 6 of 6.

One of the air vane actuators is visible in the lower right of this photo.

I believe that the high-pressure sphere is the 1.5 cubic foot, 3,000 psi sphere which supplies gas for the jet nozzles.

There are mesh bags with some sort of soft, off-white pellets attached to skirt section just left of the access door. My best guess is that it held a desiccant for when the aft unit was initially stored.
