On these type of aircraft, the wing is typically one single structure, based 
on a single, full-span spar that carries through the fuselage.  This main 
wing spar attaches via close tolerance bolts through weldment bosses in the 
fuselage truss structure.  The spar either inserts into the fuselage from 
the top or bottom depending on whether it's a midwing or low wing design.  
The wing can be removed after various skins, panels and control linkages are 
removed from the airframe.
