It has been a sad week at DOG Aviation dealing with the loss of Jan’s brother-in-law Jim, a beloved family member who will be sorely missed. Needless to say, not much time was spent in the shop the last few days but did manage to continue attaching a few more ribs onto the left spar today.
Continuing the attachment of W-1210-R ribs onto
the left wing.
Attaching the lone W-1210-L rib onto the left
wing spar’s inner most rib clip.
My friend Bernie swung by this afternoon to see how the
project was going so he was recruited to add another rib onto the left spar before
calling it quits for the day. Now there are only two aft ribs remaining to be
Bernie trying out the pneumatic riveter by
setting a few of the rivets attaching the W-1210-R ribs onto the left spar.
Ten of the twelve W-1210-R aft ribs are now riveted
onto the left spar along with the lone W-1210-L rib which is the inboard most
rib. Should be able to attach the remaining two aft ribs tomorrow and possibly begin
working on the nose ribs.
