Date: 2/3/2010
Task: Drilled left bottom wing skins and leading edge nose rib.

Started the day off by match drilling the bottom inboard and outboard left wing skins (W-704/705).

Next the W-408-1 leading edge nose rib was put into place after fluting. I aligned the flange with the edge of the skin, clamped in place, and then drilled the main rib/spar holes.

The W-423 joint plate was then inserted into place. It has a centerline marked 1/2" from the outboard edge to be drilled with the skin/rib. After checking alignment several times I drilled all the holes.
