F-1 Engine F-6049

Apparently in preparation for receiving Space Shuttle Discovery, the Smithsonian's Udvar-Hazy Center decided that they no longer wanted F-1 engine F-6049 or the nozzle extension they exhibited with it, and so returned it to Marshall Space Flight Center circa May 2012.

When I visited in July 2012, it was being stored in Bldg. 4205, in the same room as the thrust chamber from F-6090, the F-1 engine which had been disassembled by a MSFC research team. Since I had limited time to photograph the disassembled engine, I took only one photo of F-6045.
