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...
