Drilling the Longerons

Today I spent about 4 hours working through the longerons from tip to tail.  Basically you use the pre-drilled holes in the skin and with the longerons in place, drill what seemed like 1000+ holes all the way through the angle.

Forward of F704 I used additional clamps to make sure the longeron was aligned perfectly with the forward skin. Drilling these took forever, and really gave the compressor a work out. Glad this is behind me.
