Right Wing skeleton

Started on the wings!

The christmas holiday has just passed and we started on the wings today.

First we attached the main spar to the root Jig, then cleco'd the ribs to the main spar and lastly we cleco'd the rear spar on to check if everything is correct before rivetting.

Mostly all parts seem to fit nicely apart from Rib 16, which holes do not line up with the main spar. Also there is quite a gap (+/- 4 mm) between the rib and the small channel. Is it a Rib problem or a spar problem, we don't know.

Also the flap torque tube which goes through the first couple ribs seems to have maybe a little to much friction, is there a solve for this?

Builders of today:

Pepijn van Kampen

Victor Morizon
