Trailing Edge

Work has started on the port side of the trailing edge of the main wing. We are in the process of removing the fabric and skin to determine what restoration is required on the various ribs and pieces. The following photo shows the entire length of the trailing edge.

Shown below is position of rib #4 and #5 before the underside skin was cleaned and removed. One can notice the harden dirt and grease that was expelled from the port side motor.

Shown below is the removal of the skin between ribs 4 & 5. The view taken is showing rib #5.

An interesting find under the skin is (I am assuming) part markings of the form. This form allows access to the bracket holding the gear to the rear strut.
