I thought we were due for somemore pictures of what I have been doing these past few weeks at school.  We have just finished up welding, and airframe electrical, and will be finishing fabric at the end of next week.

  1. What a breathtaking view! The view from above never fails to amaze me, but so is making a plane! Creating such wonderful machines is fascinating. I remember how amazed I was when I helped my brother build his RV7. I even did the welding, which was a first time for me then.
