More about this later...

A little something I'm proud of.
The photo is of the horizontal stabilizer on a Beechjet.
It is partially removed from the airplane for repairs.
Look to the right of the chain.
See the four lugs?
The wing nut thingys are clecos. Just to the left of the leftmost
cleco there is a hole.
That hole, as well as the holes where the clecos are holding things
together, is supposed to have a rivet in it.
During the inspection I found four or five sheared rivets and a couple more smoking.
I wish I had charged admission to the manlift. Everybody has taken the ride up to
see the busted rivets.
