1637453-A2 is referenced by 2 patents and cites 5 patents.

An assembly checks the geometric alignment of leading edge and trailing edge lift devices e.g. slats and flaps on the wing of an aircraft. The assembly has a light source (6) at the wing tip linked by a fibre optic cable (5) to a photodiode light sensor (7) at the wing root. The signal received at the root is converted into an electrical signal indicating any misalignment of the lift devices.
