This was found at an F-4D Phantom crash site. Is it part of an afterburner? Dave

  Its definately not the afterburner as the afterburner section is hollow and is wraped in fuel line plumbing on the exterior.  Its not the front or rear compressor casing as both of those have multiple ridges running perpendicular to the axis of the engine.

  The section you are standing next to is the combustion chamber, and i would guess that is the "Turbine frame" exposed in your picture by the holes and the fixed guide vanes.

I initially thought that was the fwd. end of the turbine frame but now think that Thunderpig is correct it looks more like we are looking at the aft end.

  Your welcome.

  Two photos attached.  The first is the low pressure compressor casing with the variable stators exposed, and the second is the high pressure compressor casing.

  Dave:  What site is that from?
