U-2 forward fuselage, including the cockpit and engine inlets.

Picture 1 of 2.

Note the Q-bay just aft of the cockpit and under the engine inlets.

The red lettering under the canopy lower on the fuselage reads "Danger: Upward Ejection Seat". Directly under the front of the canopy simply reads "Rescue". Below and forward of that is "Push to Release Handle."

Nose, cockpit, and engine inlets on U-2 at National Air & Space Museum.
