Shuttle Tile location
« on: 05/05/2012 04:37 PM »
I have a fit tile and want to find the exact location. I know its upper fuselage port side, but I am looking for a tile map that shows its exact position.

FWD-9-07-1502-203
V 70-391042-055
OML P1
OV 099 ONLY
TP T90516
12-11-84

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

Tile 391042-055 appears to be located on the right-hand door of the nose landing gear, near the hinge-line.  I've attached a graphic with the tile highlighted in yellow (click thumbnail image to see full-sized version).  Its a slightly unusual tile shape, so should help confirm that this one identifies yours.

If its not this one, then maybe someone else will be able to help.

Yes it is very curved on one side.
