All I have on this is "Vought F4U Corsair production"
I'm guessing a fuselage assembly jig

Have to say "Gotcha" on this one - it's a display being set up in an Army hangar, not a factory; three P-36s, a B-18A with an experimental cannon setup in the lower nose, and an Airacuda. Is this at Wright Field?

Looks like a Goodyear logo on the bottom of the banner; could this be a blimp gondola (built upside down)?

Good catch. I'd say the diameter of the fuselage (or gondola) is too large to be a Goodyear Corsair...

The picture of the 190’s in the tunnel was taken at Berlin Templehof. The rail lines are still there.... also the wood post floors are still there in some areas of the Lockheed Marietta Plant in Georgia, it was the Bell Bomber plant during WW2.
It’s always cool to find small remnants like that and realize what they were, and what was once there.
