Rib (wing)
A wing component that generally defines the airfoil shape of the wing. In traditional model planes, the ribs are usually cut from balsa wood and they stand vertically in the wing, running from the leading to the trailing edge of the wing. From the side, a rib bears the airfoil shape of the wing. Many modern wing wings do not use ribs and the wing shape is defind by a wing core or by molded skins.
