Could someone please inform me as to where the reference point
is that body stations are measured from on commercial aircraft?
Is it the forward pressure bulkhead?  Is it the mounting
structure for the weather radar?  Please let me know.

Also, are there any publications that have aircraft diagrams
that would include both body stations and stringers?

And a final question.  How does Airbus designate the body
stations?  Please let me know.

Thanks in advance
James Keane
