Found this at an F-104 site. Am stumped! What could it be? Tired of trying to identify. Anyone else have any idea? Thanks Ray

Reminds me of a swab to clean a shotgun.
Parker AZ?

Yes, my guess would be a 20 mm cleaning rod that got left behind somehow.

Not aircraft part, it is something left behind by the cleanup crew.

Shotgun cotton bore swab. I have a few of these in my hunting cleaning kit.

Little screw-on flexible bore cleaner like Brad said.   I'm surprised they were cleaning their gun out there.   I always do it when I get back home.

Is that the Havasu Luftwaffe F-104G?

I didn't find the main debris field there....did you find much?     We tracked the wrong direction.

Did you find the Attitude Indicator (I left it on a shelf in that deepest wash where I found it)?   It's probably long gone now.

On your wrist ... looks like a radiator hose clamp?

Even has corrosion.  What is that?

[smile]

Shelby Mustang racing watch or something?

HA

Chris,  good work! It is in fact the F-104, my brother in law actually made the visit I just gave him directions. It is actually a funny story. I coached him from my laptop and phone (I was searching here in Tucson for something else (P-51 but that's another story) He only had a short time there. He was shooting pictures of a Jet Ski meet! (professional photographer) hence the pit pass on his wrist! I don't think he found the main debris field but did find a lot of tubing and stuff. Good one Chris! Ray
