  • Fuselage cross station H-J

    At cross section H-J plan page 19 it calls out to move the cross braces 3/4 of an inch left, to me if you were standing at the back of the plane this would be right or how are you supposed to look at it?

    Thanks,

    The left hand side of the airplane is on your left as you stand behind the airplane looking forward.

      Standing behind the plane looking at station H-J do you move the cross braces 3/4 inch to the right or left? Looks to me like the picture is right and the wording is wrong, unless I’m not looking at it right.

      Thanks

        Move the cross braces 3/4" to left viewed from standing behind the airplane looking fwd. Sht 19 STA H-J view is standing in front of the airplane looking aft.

          Just my 2 cents worth: Using "port" and "starboard" when talking about this kind of stuff would make life a lot easier... They don't move around as you do, but remain constant. Same as "forward" and "aft"... (So that's at least 4 things the Navy got right... Spoken as a former Army guy.)

            The way I finally remembered which is which is that port and left have the same number of letters and end in t.
