Regarding the wires trailing from the triple-7.

In flight test we run what we call "trailing static cones" behind the
airplane.  The idea is to get your static pressure measurements
from air that is some distance from the airplane and unaffected
by airmass disturbances caused by the airplane.

Hope this helps...
