C119 Report - January 12, 2011

Work is continuing in spite of the weather, with the focus on the repair of the front wing starboard flap. The flap is in the 1941 hanger where it's warm enough to work and this will be our first attempt at this kind of repair. Kevin did some research on technique and located some of the tools we will need. We purchased an on-line service manual, and built two new sawhorses to support the flap at a comfortable working height.

George Norsen started on the new sawhorses.

It was looking a bit desolate around the grounds today.

Nice pictures of Hangars, by the looks of it the 1941 Hag star would stand proud on the big hangar, I'd have to make bigger props. And the letters would have to be custom made. Bigger letters. The lettering jig could make names for all hag members etc. That's the message I got. Joe

Horses look good, I had to make one in school for a grade. The course was compound angles. Got a 96.
Now all you need to do is add an electrical outlet to each horse with a cord to plug in. That way you don't drag cords all over the place. 8-)
