Wing Root Design Inside the Cockpit

Untitleddrawing-29

Looking up toward the skylight shows how the Northstar wing mates up with the Wag Aero Fuselage.  The forward fuel line leads down the fuselage “A” pillar and into the fuel selectors right port and the rearward fuel line leads down the “B” pillar and back down behind the baggage panel to a belly sump.  From there it goes forward and also ties into the right fuel selector port.  This arrangement provides positive fuel head pressure whether the aircraft’s attitude is nose high or nose low without the need for an electric fuel pump.  The photo also shows how the ailerons leading edge cable travels up from the control stick and enters the internal leading edge area of the wing.
