Fairing for air brakes
Center section rib

We continue to work on the wing spars only four more to go and the routing will be complete. When the routing is completed we will then do the final shaping of the spars, and we can start on the final assembling of the wings. Made the fairings for the airbrakes, these fill the area between the airbrakes and the center section aft spar. At the same time we are building the ribs that make up the center section. These ribs have to be built up piece by piece on the center section, much harder than building the ribs in a jig, where you can control the gluing process.

Two first term students have shown up to help on the build, they are Gary Lancaster and Ramon deCastro
