Riveted Parts?

Couldn't find the thread about recognizing parts so I thought I'd throw this photo out for all of you to guess on.

Clue #1 It's steel not aluminum.

Clue #2 It's got more rivets than my 28' Funeral Coach.

Winner get's a big surprise from me!

Please submit your answer in with a self addressed envelope and $5 for S & H

Looks like a shot from the nose gear well of a F-86 over Toko-Ri

I'm with Mark, looks like part of a suspension bridge like the one that failed when an eye opened.

Mark, you're too sharp for me. The drop is 250' to the river. This is the bridge originally built for the railroad into Kennecot Mine now located in Wrangles - St. Elias National Park.

It's now an automobile bridge on the 50 mile gravel road into McCarthy / Kennecot. Built just after the turn of the century....the last one... steel by Carnegie. Lots and lots of rivets.

We had the inside tour of this one too. Note that we've down under the bridge deck on a catwalk. Nice view.

Printable Parts Book

Does anyone know how I might be able to get a printable parts book for my 1986 Excella. I found 1 on Airstream site but does not offer the year I need. Any help would be appreciated.

Glen you gave the answer before I had a chance to ask for the address to send the $5. Is the contest over?

So sorry, contest closed early due to first guess being the winner. Big surprise was that the prize was a big fat wet kiss. Still waiting for the ca$h.

There'd better be dinner and a movie first.
