I thought it was wrapped in its later years and when they moved the plane (I am guessing they had to take the wings off to move it) to its current location, the wrap likely started to come off. So they just removed the rest of it when they put it in storage.It's been repainted since 2019 at least. Latest developments were the fence and plastic covering, then the plastic getting damaged in August. If the Fox video really is from this week and not archival footage to generate clicks, they took the torn cover off.
