Brief Description:  

The Aeronautical Engineer isn't available until sometime after Feb. 14th, so I will juts fiddle for a couple of weeks.

We have endured severe cyclonic weather along the eastern Australian Coast during this week and lots of flooding and damage.

I have about 10 large trees that have blown down on our property, so I can see me being busy on other more pressing matters over the next week or so.

Yesterday I started to cleco the leading edge ribs into place and the seven trailing edge ribs.

Found that I had only been given 12 leading edge ribs, (the one between ribs 11 & 12 in front of the fuel tank was missing for each wing), so I moved the one from the rib 10 position to midway between 11 & 12.

Without the nose rib stringers, not sure as yet how I will hold these nose ribs in place whilst drilling the leading edge skins?

Finding the wing ribs to be very floppy due to the cut outs along the top edge and it is hard to keep them in straight alignment fore & aft.
