Overall walk-around of the missile's boattail.

Picture 6 of 11.

Hurricane Frances appears to have blown off one of the boattail panels (upper left); compare with dsc05708.jpg. I have additional shots into this panel starting at dsc07235.jpg.

Also note the vernier engine at center; most Atlases are displayed without their LR-101 verniers.
