Depends on whether you've got fixed or retractable gear. With fixed, the aft
fuel bulkhead intersects the fuselage forward of where the angled bulkhead
joins the gear and horizontal bulkheads, so the triangle can come out. If
you have an RG, however, the aft fuel bulkhead is further back (closer to
the spar), and some of that triangle area forms the tank boundary.
