surprised no one mentioned as well as no fire extinguishers it never had a battery either.
You may find that there are a few DFs that spent a large number of hours, swearing and bitching, upside down in the RCP trying to get the battery into the hole, especially on the twin stickers.

IIRC Aux air doors upper and lower were part of the mechanism to bleed air from the intake at lower forward air speeds. Not sure at what speed they closed but the point was they closed at higher speeds to get intake compression.

The Toom looked hard in a no nosense, don't f+++ with me way the same as Steve Collins the boxer.

Was and always will be an awesome beast.
