I spent the better part of the day out at the airport working on the Swift annual. I have a tricky landing gear box repair that I have to do, and I decided to get a little practice in mounting nutplates. When I do the actual repair, I have to take the gear off again, and I want to be ready to install the nut plates right away so that I don't leave the airplane on jacks. Every time I jack up the airplane, I get the willies. If it falls off the jack, it will punch a hole in the wing which would be a bad thing. Anyway, I managed to get a nutplate properly secured and I learned a lot in the process. When I had the landing gear off the other day, I didn't get a good look at some things I wanted to see. So I am getting ready to deal with the eventualities.
