Day 20 - March 29, 2014

Work continued on the empennage kit. A mix of teams Red and Green began assembling the framework of the tail cone, riveting the stiffeners, bottom skins, and frames together.

A couple of students were given the task of preparing the bulkhead assembly, which will reside in the rear of the tail cone structure. This piece required much effort, involving many different types of fasteners and sub-assemblies.

As always, more work progressed within the fuselage. Team Purple continued with some more flight control installation, specifically the flaperon lever and pushrod assemblies. Both seat backs were also constructed, and placed aside for future installation.

With the flaperons installed onto the right wing assembly, both wings are ready for the following step of construction: attaching to the fuselage, the main task for next week's session. Stay tuned.
