Wings - Ailerons

Back to Log Index

Date: 12/12/2009
Task: Assembled the left aileron

Today I shot the rivets on the top spar of the left aileron. After finding the correct bucking bar, I was able to do it solo. It came out great!

Then I pulled it off the jig, and rived the top skin to the nose rib on the inboard end.

...then on the outboard end.

Next it went back on the jig with the main ribs inserted into place

I squeezed the rivets on the top half of the skin to rib and also the two spar to rib rivets.
