    The original finding aid described this as: Description: During Remote Manipulator System (RMS) dynamic interaction test using Payload Flight Test Article (PFTA) grapple fixture number (no.) 2, corner of PFTA is visible in upper left corner with payload bay (PLB) experiments, vertical tail, and orbital maneuvering system (OMS) pods below. PLB configuration (forward to aft) includes: Development Flight Instrumentation (DFI) pallet with High Capacity Heat Pipe experiment, Evaluation of Oxygen Interaction with MAterials (EOIM) experiment trays, U.S. Postal Service special philatelic covers in two large storage (mail) boxes, Thermal Protection System (TPS) low temperature reusable surface insulation (LSRI) tiles, and advanced flexible reusable surface insulation (AFRSI) blankets; empty PFTA non-standard orbiter payload guide and trunnion / scuff plates on port and starboard longerons; empty Manipulator Positioning Mechanisms (MPMs) for RMS upper arm, lower arm, and wrist on port longeron; GAS canisters (two on port side, two on starboard side) with U.S. Postal Service special philatelic covers; spacecraft sunshield closed over thermal blanket-covered airborne support equipment (ASE); and closed circuit television (CCTV) pan/tilt cameras on aft bulkhead. RMS undergoing dynamic interaction test using PFTA is not in views.
