as far as the #27, that is into the fuse skin and yes it is 3
On page 06-04 figure 1, we left 6 holes open on each side of the vertical stabilizer. On page 12-11 figure 2, it says to final drill #27 the aft hole (which is just the metal fairing and vertical stabilizer) and to blind drill #40 7 places per side in addition to that. That's 8 holes on page 12-11 compared to only 6 on page 06-04.
Maybe what's meant is that the 7 places you blind drill #40 include the two lower holes, which would then be blind-drilled #40 and final-drilled #27 instead of just blind-drilled #27 as the 3 holes in figure 1 show.
I'm sure that the answer is just "drill the holes that are there, dummy" but, being a dummy, I like to ask these things just in case.
