img_1251.jpg (Recovered LOX DOME)

Overall view of a second LOX dome.

Note the flange on the inlet (at left) which has been torn off, presumably when the LOX high-pressure duct was torn off during landing.

Also note the round index pin, used to ensure that the LOX dome and injector are properly oriented on the thrust chamber, located at right (under the intact LOX dome inlet).

Picture 3 of 3.
