Wing and Fuselage Jig Matching March 2017
The precise matching of the wing mounts to their counterparts on the fuselage is the next major step. The previously manufactured metal jig will be matched to precision drilled extensions from the fuselage hang points that, in turn, will be mounted onto the wing to place the mounting points there. This has to be very accurate work. When the completed wing is offered up to the fuselage, it has to fit with complete accuracy. And all this work has to be completed before the central underside wing covering goes on and the wing is turned over. Many careful hours have to be spent on this job!
