Day 24 - June 10, 2017

This week, TF5 continued to work on many tasks including the fuel tank, the forward fuselage, the wing spars, and the wheels.  As for the fuel tank, the body was clecoed and match-drilled in preparation for riveting soon.  The mechanical and electrical fuel gauges were also temporarily attached for proper adjustments.  The upper engine mount was torqued down to the proper tightness and will eventually have an engine attached to it.  As for the wings, the flaperon hinges were riveted to the doubler plates and rear spar webs.  Also, the wheel tubes were installed and underwent the process of inflation and deflation to ensure there was no binding against the tire.  The wheels are now almost completely assembled with the proper fit.      

Stay tuned!
