Top aileron framed up.


I pulled the first top aileron out of the fixture Friday night. The ribs looked good and were glued to the spar correctly. The trailing edge pieces wandered a bit and didn't work out as well.

We busted the TE pieces out of the aileron and setup up the fixture again. Much easier now that the ribs were glued. After a couple jig adjustments, the TE pieces all sat where they were supposed to go.

Today, I pulled the aileron out of the jig and everything looks real good. The trailing edge is straight and flat like it should be. It was too cold to glue up another part, so nothing else got done today.

Here's a picture of the framed up aileron hung on the top wing.
