Wings & Ailerons

I was able to get some helpers and we got the wings hung. Then I attached the ailerons and installed the control sticks, rudder pedals, and brakes.

When it came time to put a nut on the bolt that holds the strut to the bracket on the bottom of the fuselage, I discovered that the bolts that hold the bracket to the fuselage got in the way. So, I converted the bolt into a clevis pin, and used cotter pins to hold in place.

Total Time: 62.0 hrs.
