F-84E Pylon

Close-up of right-side weapons pylon on F-84E at USAF Museum, Dayton, Ohio. Also notice the external "brace" plate forward of the gear bay. Brace plates were common field additions to many types of aircraft, the F-84 Thunderjet included, to strengthen areas showing signs of fatigue. Bruce Craig.
