F3H-2 Sections and Station Cuts

METADATA-/scanq/scantofile0271.tif Another Alex Thomas Loft Sheet  L S 25-1 showing F3H-2 Sections and Station Cuts. Dated November 18 1967.

For those of you not from the aircraft business, the Loft Lines department of MDC was tasked with being the keepers of the mold lines of the aircraft, pods; etc. This is also know a the Aircraft Outer Mold Line (OML). If something impacted the external surfaces of these items, Loft Lines was involved. I worked in the Loft Lines department for several years in the late 1960’s while getting my degree. Lofting is an old ship building term that carried over into the aircraft industry. Today, computers are used for this task.
