Wing rib sub assemblies

As shown in the photos you can see the vast majority of the wing ribs have been manufactured ready to be assembled into the wings. Having all of these now pre made with all doubler and reinforcing strips also done, greatly reduces the assembly time.


A more general view showing the quantity of the majority of the ribs built. 


Some of the wing ribs that have been pre-built ready for the wing restoration. The drawings and information used is kept with the stacks of ribs until the process is complete. 


A selection of the larger ribs in the wheel bay area. Of note is the LH/RH pairs of ribs. These are built concurrently but both use different sets of tooling because of they are handed.
