Left side of front of fuselage of F-84C at March Field Museum, Riverside, California. This is the first photo in a sequence I took to compare panel and length differences between the D- and earlier and E/G- models of the Thunderjet. Note absence of nose gear collapsing rod and the small nose-bay fairing panel which accompanied the rod, which were used starting with the D-model. Nose ring on Thunderjets is stainless steel.
