Aileron nose ribs installed

Posted on Updated on

Now that the aileron spar glue is dry its time to install the aileron nose ribs. On ribs #4 and #7 the nose rib is made from two pieces of plywood.

The two ribs were glued together.

Then installed and held in place with clamps. These ribs are wider to provide enough glue area for two pieces of plywood that will be joined here.
