Early McAir Aircraft Muffler

D4E-20985 Dec-23-52 Another example of an early McAir aircraft outdoor muffler. This one is from Dec 23, 1952 and shows an F2h-3 Banshee (126326) being backed into position; but before the funneling hardware has been attached.

Another interesting fact about this photo is what is stenciled under the tailplane. “This is an experimental finish, do not apply paint without specific authorization. See log book entry page __” Anyone know anything about this?
