The guys in the workshop in Bend have been making lots of progress recently. The build rate is really picking up and the excitement is building along with the parts count.
Much of the current progress is the boring stuff: project timeline plans and specifications for instruments and oxygen bottles. The exciting stuff is the molds being built and fresh parts coming off those molds. Unfortunately at this point we don’t have a lot of photos of this progress that we can share but I do have one photo below from the workshop.
This shows the fuselage plugs, which were used to build the molds for the right side of the fuselage. They are shown here about to be joined together for the first time. This shows the scale of the full length of the fuselage. I think this is the first time that we have had the full length displayed on the workshop floor.
