Overall walk-around of F-1 engine.

Picture 3 of 6.

The engine is nestled among other artifacts, preventing me from getting the more customary 8-position walk-around.

The darker rectangular areas just forward of the exit plane are presumably from the nozzle extension handling fixture. I am uncertain as to whether the pads on the handling fixture discolored these areas or whether the pads helped minimize corrosion (so the darker areas are more representative of the original color of the shingles).
