A step back…

No Comments

Saturday was a day that appeared to be a step backwards. Going from something that looks like an airplane to a stack of aluminum sheet.

Building a plane is made up of the three D’s: Drill, Deburr and Dimple. We have completed the forward skin drilling and making of ribs, longerons and brackets.

It was now time to dissassemble for deburring and dimpling.  So, what looked kinda like an airplane, now once again looks like a pile of aluminum.

Hmmmm… Maybe we need to have a Cleco party?  Sounds like fun!  Gotta borrow a BBQ, and do a little planning.

 

More later.
