The Windward Performance worskhop in Bend, Oregon is currently working on the fuselage that will be used for destructive testing. This is the one that has to have all of the structural details of the final aeroplane but it will be over-pressurised until is bursts. Adding those structural details is taking longer than we thought; it’s not just a simple test. We have to have the whole thing finished and nearly ready to fly before we destroy it.
We also have the flight-ready wing skins under construction. In the photos above, Eric Greenwell checks out the progress on the right wing.
