Ailerons get fitted to the Wing!

Happy Easter 2009! Here is the left aileron (inboard)getting fitted and temp bolted in place. I used the aileron bellcrank jig to help align the flight controls, then only minor adjustments were needed to the aileron pushrod.... A few turns to raise the aileron a bit. Looks good from what I can tell. I will get a second option from one of our techs at work to be sure though. Flap fitting is next...
Outboard view. *Tip- Use a dab of grease or a dot of super glue to help hold the washers in place while placing the bolts.

Good News! Just got a call from the transport driver...... Finishing Kit will be here tomorrow!
