Excerpt from Aeroplane Structures

The shape of the wing is kept by means of ribs or formers (r), which consist of light wooden structures made to the contour of the wing section and rigidly attached at intervals of about 12 inches to the main Spars. These ribs transmit the load from the wing covering to the main spars. To the front edge of these ribs a metal or wooden member called the lead ing edge (le) is attached. This runs parallel to the spars throughout the wing and forms the nose piece of the structure. This member must be very stiff as it has to carry heavy pressures. To the aft portion of the ribs the trailing edge (te) is attached, forming the tail of the wing. This member need not be of Special strength, and balloon cord or wire stretched tightly is very com mouly used for it instead of wood or tube.
