    The lady is DRILLING not riviting. This looks like the decking for something other than the A-20.

    looks like she's in the wing behind the engine mount (nacelle)

    I believe the process of riveting requires one drill a hole first.

    Whats more important? Drilling? Riveting? or brown shoes, blue socks and a maroon pants.

    definitely the hair net, but I was really pulling for the shoes.

    gives a very clear sense of scope and scale of the operation, ....those drills were not like tools we have today. I am struck.
