I have weird views from weird perspectives. Are you surprised?
One of our corporate jets has been moved stateside for some refurbishment and I decided to drive up to where it is hangered and do a walk-around. Most people typically only see the exterior shell (the monocoque outer plates) when boarding through a doorway. The surface is most often painted, glossy, and clean of course.
As I walked past the left main gear it struck me that the underside — which on this craft is not painted — really looks old fashioned. The rivets are incredibly obvious. It looks like the skin of a DC-3 even though this is a 15 year old Boeing aircraft, There are of course areas where warnings are posted either due to rapid intake of air through a vent or rapid exhaust of air out of a vent. In other areas there are multiple layers of aluminum riveted on top of each other carrying key loads into the fuselage. The main gear comes up and turns at perhaps a 30 degree angle towards the fuselage.
Little short me cannot see down the exhaust tube, by standing at the rear of engines, to the turbine blades. I need a ladder for this. It remains a good view however as I know the technology in such a machine is often hidden, e.g. it is an alloy say that was cryo-formed and the typical idiot would never realize some bright mind was able to enable this thing to carry him to Jamaica for his next fuXX-fest.
Such is my life so often. A hidden world that others never desire to see even when their eyes are wide-open.
