YKC: Photo # 63 shows a good comparison between the "thin" wing struts that actually support the upper wing and the larger airfoil shaped rotating wing strut used to slow the plane down.

YKC:  Photos # 32 & 33 show extreme close ups of the "rotating" wing strut detail near the lower wing, revealing the pulling wire to the control horn used to rotate the strut.

YKC: This series of photos are all of the left lower wing and landing light details.  There are two landing lights, one for each lower wing.  On photo #'s 10 & 11, notice the wire attached to the outer wing strut.  More on next series of postings.  This wire is used to twist the main strut into facing the wind, and thereby used to increase drag and slow down the plane.  Photo # 36 is the underside view of the left lower wing and aileron detail.

YKC:  Photos # 28 & 29 show the underside of the forward left side of the fuselage just in front of the main landing gear, showing close ups of the fuel strainer, foot step to the left main landing gear strut and underside details.

YKC:  Photo # 74 shows the overhead ceiling and the hand "crank" elevator trim handle just above the front pilot's seats.  The long leather strip next to the trim handle is the trim indicator.  As the trim is adjusted, a small marker slides either forward (nose down) or back (nose up).

YKC:  Photo # 37 shows a close up of the clip fastened to the wing strut.  Compare to photo # 4 in previous posting.  Photo # 75 shows the cabin door as viewed from the inside of the cabin looking out.  Photo # 72 shows the rear interior of the cabin just above the rear "bench style" seat.
