Wings - Fuel Tanks

Back to Log Index

Date: 6/6/2010
Task: Sealed and riveted the right fuel tank.

Tonight we sealed and riveted all but the inboard and outboard ribs on the right fuel tank. It went well after having already done the left tank.

After sealing and riveting all ribs (other than the outboard and inboard most ones). I inserted the snap-bushings for the vent line.

The right tank with no clecos!!! It is so satisfying seeing no more clecos!

A view from the top. Left for the right fuel tank is to insert the vent line, seal and rivet the inboard rib, T-705/710 plates along with the flop tube, and the outboard most rib. We will do that next.
