Just got back from another visit to Windsor and thought I would post some more photos for you guys!
First we have the RH main wing section. The St Clair College students were put to work on this one slowly removing and making new skins. There was a quite large birds nest in this one when they opened it up and some damage to the ribs in the area where the wing hoist point is. Lots of work to go but it's a good start!
Here we have the inboard trailing edge sections, the inboard flap sections and the inboard fuel tank covers, all completed and primed now.
Once the aircraft was lowered on to its stands, the team wasted no time and removed the cockpit section from the center section and began stripping everything out of there. They're now working on new skins for the cockpit section along with the removal of the inboard firewalls, wiring, tubing etc. from the center section. Once everything is removed from the center section we have to look into getting the landing gear support frames NDT'd as a lot of groups has issues with cracks in them. We also have to start looking into how we are going to approach the spar web repair and floor in the fuselage portion of the center section.
The support for the tail section was also recently completed and installed so it won't be long before the tail section is separated from the center section as well.
Here is the RH inboard firewall after being cleaned up and painted. The plan is to finish each firewall section and re-install as much as we can on them before they have to be installed on the aircraft down the road.
This last one is the instrument panel so far. A couple of the guys have slowly been working away on restoring the various cockpit components that we removed for the guys to get access to all of the structure.
I'll be back down in December, so expect another update sometime around there.
