Brief Description:  Left Wing

Today I made sure that all pitot/AOA tubing and fittings would fit before permanently installing the bottom wing skins. I drilled out the holes for the fittings that adapt the 1/4" plastic tubing to the 3/16" aluminum tubing of the pitot tube, then temporarily assembled the tubing and fittings in place to ensure clearance between the tubing and the moving parts of the bellcrank. I then removed the fittings and tubing so they wouldn't interfere with skin riveting. The system can be permanently installed through access holes after skin riveting is complete.

I then clecoed both bottom skins to the left wing to ensure squareness of the structure before commencing riveting.
