Unfortunatelly I don't have one like that for the F35. The most technical one I found was THIS one but it doesn't give much on the placement of sensors and other gear.

Hydraulic fluid is red IIRC.

LOL you think I don't know that.....been awhile since I was on the line but damn I haven't forgot everything yet give someone more credit than that would ya. I have seen plenty of aircraft deiced and of course the crew chiefs did the most perfect spray job everytime. I was just thinking maybe some fluid from a deice job.

The area that appears wet is behind the OBIGGS panel. It may simply be a bit of fuel. I think the liquid is clear and the green is just an exposed area of the anti-corrosive coating used on the panel surface. It's the right color. I see this a lot at Edwards. The panel that is partially raised is definitely the APU exhaust. I'm not sure why it would not be flush in flight.

That's what I was thinking. It was the green primer showing through:

The only thing I see the fluid being is a suppression system, although I really thought that would be back closer to the exhaust.

As for the panels, I'm totally stumped.


we know the B-2 has a classified antenna that pops up above the skin of the bomber and retracts when not in use. I'm wondering if thats it...

I doubt the antenna is this, but we have a system that links imagery from aircraft with the SHARP pod to the ship or shore in near real time, we call it ICE imagery. For the life of me I can't remember what it stands for and searching for it, well, you get ice.

ETA: I wonder if it is something similar to image targets. Also could be COMINT or communications related to the aircraft.

I believe it is the counter measure ejection port that wasn't retracted all the way either before or after it was used:

As far as the green goes, the only thing I've got is maybe the outer coating was this exposing the green under primer or a trick of the light off the outer coating.

Seems the best, and most likely, candidate to me. Good find.

Looks like oxidized copper. Like a green penny. Are any of the components copper based? I'm not super familiar with the specifics. My first thought was copper particles that accumulated and oxidized.

Yes, military hydraulic oil is red and flammable whilst commercial oil like skydrol are other colors and generally inflammable. Test vehicles can use different oil though.

The green could be turbine oil however.

The raised pod is a CM dispenser.

Well that would depend on where you live. lol

But if its alaska then yes. all units in alaska, guard, reserve, active, etc all use AK on their tail for fighters.
