Day 21 - April 5, 2014

Today's session involved work on assemblies of all sizes. Starting with the tail section, the bulkhead assembly was finally completed and attached to the tail cone structure along with the side skins.

For the fuselage section, a few students completed some prep work on fuel tank pieces and landing gear components. Others worked on bolting the engine mount standoff to the fuselage firewall, as well as attaching the canopy frame.

Now onto the major assembly of the day...

The hangar experienced a little rearrangement today to make room for the 27 feet span of wing and fuselage! The exciting task of wing attachment was finally accomplished this afternoon. After some period of maneuvering and adjustment, both wings slid into the fuselage and are now resting comfortably in their proper places on the plane. A great deal of satisfaction and excitement was shared among all, however the hangar suddenly feels a bit crowded.
