The February Meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will be Sunday February 8th, 2 PM at Red Stewart Airfield.
The Program topic will be rib stitching. I have come across a diagram of the knot used on the Beech Staggerwing. It is a very simple knot to tie. I am attaching a copy of that knot. I am also attaching the portion of AC 43-13 that covers the various rib stitching knots that are used. There is a YouTube video showing rib stitching on a Stearman wing. The knotting procedure is rather clearly shown in the video below.
