Good day, long day.( Read more...Collapse )
Page 9-5, drilled one half of the C-640 canopy splice plate as called forthrid paragraph down on page. One of the holes, (and I remeasured to be certain I did not screw it up, hit one of the machined holes in the f-631a (canopy) channel.. I added a hole on either side of that and will just match drill the two misplaced holes for asthetics and move forward.
Weird, I remeasured and was correct...
But this will, drill the weird hole out to match for aesthetics, and add a hole on each side of that. Done.
You can trim the hole in the F-643 further aft – see dwg 24A, the hole goes much closer to the aft flange than what you have there.
Removing some more from the F-697 is OK also.
