Not Ready For The Shredder

Nikon D-80 10-24nn @ 24mm ISO 200 1/15 f/11 Lr3 HDR Efex Pro

Despite the distressed appearance of the back end of this fuselage, this aircraft is not ready for the metal shredder, it is just waiting for the attention of the aviation restoration team.  On the tarmac at the Planes of Fame museum, Chino Airport, Chino, California.

The torn and twisted metal skin, and the angularity and strength conveyed by the aircraft fasterners, juxtaposed against the delicate spider web  and the symmetry and smoothness of the internal baffle caught my eye.
