Fix Left Wing (Again)

Unfortunately, the route I chose for the ride to the airport couldn't have been more rough. There were so many potholes and railroad tracks that it was simply astonishing. It turns out that we secured the wings too well to the rack so that when we finally did make it to the airport, another one of the ribs had ended up cracking (this time on the left wing). I followed the (now familiar) process of cutting away the fabric around the damaged rib, repairing the underlying structure, re-covering the area, masking, priming, and finally re-painting the affected area.

Total Time: 12.25 hrs.
