    My 11-year-old daughter's spontaneous answer to this is: That's an aircraft turbine.

    So?
    Is it?

    I think that it is an air-screw (propeller - I don't know how to call it) made on a long exposure... :D or maybe not so long if it was going really fast.

    Ah,

    Everyone is so close, yes its part of a Turbin put what is the actual name of the part.

    Mentos_007 No I didn't shot it on a long exposure I took it right after it was done spoil down.

    Here is a hint take alook at it real hard and remmeber what happen to the Soiux City Falls United Airlines crash. this is one of the three items that failed.

    Cheers

    I'll take a wild stab and say it's a 737. Unless it's like the one that crashed in Soiux City...DC-10.

    AirVenturer,

    You got the first part right its the front Maint Turbon Fan assembly blades, Since I know you've been to a few Airshows heres a clue for you its a USAF bird and this one was on display at Oshkosh this Year.

    Its not a fighter but you were close with the DC-10, hint think about Civi birds that are used by the USAF.

    Cheers

    KC-10? I can't remember if there was one at Oshkosh this year. There has been in the past. I know for sure there was the C-5. But of course there is no civilian version of it...cool if there was!
