Wing Exchange

Hours: 2.0 | Posted in Structure

Trying several test fits of different center sections and splice plates to the different wing spar so as to judge changes of easy wing change out.

For these trial fits, will use these letters:

A- Current wings on the plane, to be taken off
B- Set of wings, splice plates, center section, Circa 1991
C- Set of wings, splice plates, center section, Circa 2000, the ones that I plan to use on the plane.

Here is splice plate B fitted to spar C, very good fit!

Center section B fitted to spar, very good fit!

So, I’m encouraged at this point. Only the outer most holes are a little off.
