a lot of saw dust from four spars
fixture for routing aileron spars

Still working on the ailerons, progress is good though. Spent a complete work session just routing out the aileron spars, made a bunch of sawdust. The routing process removed at least 1.5 lbs of wood from each section of the spars and there is two sections to each spar. When finished the spars will be very light but strong. Work continues on other areas as well, the oil tank is complete except for the mount plates and they will be added at a later time. The pulleys for the trim and air brake systems are still in the machining process, but should be finished very soon. The machining is being done in house by Del Key the night shift supervisor.

Gave a tour of the project today for the new first term students, had some interest in working on the project from the group.
