Task: ELT Mount & Aft fuse wiring holes
the ELT bracket today. All that remained was countersinking
the holes for #8 screwns (AN515-8R8). I'm very happy with
the way the ELT will be located. Out of the way and secure
on the side of the tail skin between two j-stringers.Next
we drilled holes in F-707, F-708, F-709, F-710, F-711 for
electrical wires. Finally, we drilled out a dozen or so "keeper"
pop rivets from F-705E-R/L and the upper longerons to remove
F-705G to drill a 1/4 hole in the left one for the static
line. We also needed to remove those rivets anyway to pull
out the F-757-T plate. It needs to have a square cut out of
it for the tip-up canopy latch.
