sopwith wing at aviation school
Precision measurements are required to ensure the upper wing attache points are in the correct position.

Aviation Institute of Maintenance in Atlanta is continuing work on the WWI Sopwith Strutter aircraft. The last two weeks have seen some good progress on the wing attach fittings. We have some new term 1 student volunteers here at the aviation school and they have been busy cutting and filing the pieces. We are also working on the cabane fittings to attach the upper wing. The upper wing attach section is taking a bit of time as it has to be very accurate to insure the angle of the wing is correct.  Another aviation school student has come forward to volunteer and he has a background in machine work, so we put him to work on a gear set we need for the trim system. When they are finished we will finally be able to operate the system and confirm that it works as planned.
