Portions of the leading edges of the wing are missing because the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) borrowed these leading edge panels, as well as the landing gear doors to aid in the Space Shuttle Columbia accident analysis.  This hardware was used in high-speed impact tests to determine the cause of tha accident, and it remains in use for return-to-flight testing..Credit: Ron Sachs / CNP.(RESTRICTION: NO New York or New Jersey Newspapers or newspapers within a 75 mile radius of New York City)
