Abstract

II—FUSELAGE JIGS THE type of jig required for the erection of a main component depends primarily upon the machine's construction (stressed‐skin or girder) and secondarily upon the type of assembly adopted (one‐piece or unit). With a fuselage the former is by far the more important factor, as upon it rests not only the form of the building of the actual structure, but also all the installation problems of the more advanced stages of assembly.
