Interior of Redstone tail unit, forward looking aft.

The smaller hole at the 12:00 position is the steam vent (which dumps the turbine's exhaust steam).

Also note the air rudder/jet vane actuators (with the bicycle-type chain) located at 90° intervals around the periphery of the far end of the tail unit.

This photo was taken when the tail unit was stored in the North Campus building, laying on its side.
