Here’s an annotated version of one of yesterday’s photos.

Below is an F.1 with wings removed. Christian writes” It’s Mirage F1 for sure as it’s an up-wing aircraft. On your second picture you can see the junction place body/wing  (right side is forward – left side aft of the aicraft)  
On my picture (below) the Mirage F1 is  opposite side (right forward) but you can see the same  body to wing junction and then with the yellow arrow you can see the same fairing. 
About the Kfir : first of all it’s not a Dassault and/or French built but an Israeli made aircraft. I’m almost sure that Israel never sold to Saudi !       
I’m thinking that the ones (on the container ship) are former Jordanian and are just coming to from Jordan via Saudi – sold to the US compagny  ATAC for spare parts. “

Many thanks to everyone who commented, even anonymously. It all goes to show you never know what you’re going to see next.

Clifford Maersk is making her final approach into port of NYNJ, arriving here from King Abdul Aziz Seaport in Damman, KSA.   So what?  Check out the non-containerized cargo near the front center of the load.

See it?

As the container ship approached, I managed to get some closer up photos.    I have my theory, but I’ll leave it to you to state yours in the comments

 

Do you see the “squiggle” on the camouflage just right of the red panel, above the rightmost blue container marked “45”?  I call that shape “ithnayn,” Arabic for the number two.

Again, I’m not putting into words what I see here, but I will say it’s poorly wrapped, or formerly wrapped.

This isn’t the first time I’ve seen intriguing cargoes.  Remember these Oshkosh trucks with Hebrew writing on them?  And then there have been other military hardware . . .  military trucks and other vehicles atop the boxes previously here, here, here, and here.   Once I even spotted a cigarette boat way up there.

All photos, WVD.  After your guesses, I’ll show my hand.   And since I’m not trick or treating or dancing tonight, here’s your second post for today.
