Brief Description:  Wings, Day #1

Today, I started the wings. As with any large endeavor there is a "soft" opening before the "grand opening" at a later date. Today I removed the wing spars from the box, and unwrapped one of them from its plastic. Since the blueprints depict the LEFT wing on the drawings I decided to start with the LEFt wing. How did I know it was the left wing? Great question! The blue prints depict the spar witting in the wing with the milled bar stock beams in the front of the channel, with the flange facing aft. Big picture for all you young readers out there, the MILLED BARS go FORWARD and the FLANGE goes AFT. This places the bolt holes for the left wing on the RIGHT of the spar, to coneect them to the left side of the spar carry through box. Confused enough? I was, so I checked this like 20 times then tentatively marked the spar with a sharpie depicting which direction the spar lays in the airplane with arrows and words like LEFT TOP and LEFT and TOP. After that I (lightly) secured the spar to the work bench to keep it from falling over/falling off the work bench.
