you make a
mistake, you will have a big repair job ahead of you.
Landing wires hold the wings up during
landing, while sitting on the ground and when pulling negative G's.

hold the wings down when flying and doing positive G's. This is one
reason that biplanes are able to pull the high G's with only small wooden

along with the struts create a box section truss with the wires being the
