Make sure there are no repairs or patches on the skins. Check for Filiform corrosion which appears as tiny worms crawling in the paint.
Check for pitting or holes in the skin surface, look along the trailing edges for delaminating or metal flaking off so edges.
Look in logs to ensure they were balanced properly and data entered into logbook.
