Something like that Richie. Take a look at the Lindbergh skyhook on previous page and, see how it's constructed. Not found image of 'aluminium cylinders' fitted to the skyhook ,yet, but there were 11 of them on board.
The idea is to identify kit that is unique only to this flight. Most airplanes have wings, control surfaces, engines, undercarriage, fuselage etc...
What most airplanes don't have is what we're after, auxillary fuel tanks with rods, levers to control the distribution of fuel, skyhook and aluminium cylinders and bracket/clamps, door props and brackets and, anything else that would be unique to this flight. Good work Richie.

What about AE's sunglasses?  Very distinctive artifact if found... on the dash?

Only if she had them made especially for her Jeff  ;)

Hope to be putting up some images this weekend regarding the kit carried onboard (unique to this flight). Would very much appreciate help in trying to identify said items. Images not from reef so we should all be able to see them ;)

No Richie, it's gear being loaded onto the Electra that I need help in identifying.

Yes it's hard to tell Richie, stuff comes and goes on this flight but, as it was a flying laboratory it would make sense that the experimental equipment was still on board at the Lae departure point.
http://youtu.be/X7dKPThKGdg
Here's a couple of stills from the loading at Oakland now, it doesn't say if it was the first or second attempt but, the Luke field inventory was completed after the first attempt went pear shaped and, that inventory contained everything that was shipped back to Oakland for attempt number 2.
Yes, I know it wasn't the last footage of AE like the title says is incorrect.

A is reflection of light probably from person behind camera filming, an B might be the rod used for experiment but given what little space there is in fuselage...

even when not extended it would take alot of effort  :)

I thought A would be a candidate for their skyhook. B I thought was the the hook to hold the door open but, that is further down in the shot, so B is still a mystery.
