This F7F-2 (probably XF7F-2 prototype) displays the typical exhaust streaking across the top of the wing. A set of exhaust stacks at the top center of the engine nacelle made this Gray deposit. Two other sets of exhausts (one on either side of the nacelle), deposited similar streaking on the engine nacelle below the wing.original size link JPEG 1186 x 719, 135 KB
