Oh I get ya now....! No, that's steel rod I suspect at the bottom of the fuselage for strengthening and possibly "leg-up" foot holds. Very large doors in that area.

Originally designed as a light transport - but failed at that...converted to an air ambulance for two stretchers and a "medial attendant".
