Glider Assembly (and Tow Plane too!)

Thanks to the volunteers who showed up to help on Sunday 5/13!

For the low price of a few of us having sore shoulders to hold the wing, the wings are now back on the tow plane.  Still not all connected up, but at least looking like an airplane!  Might be another weekend before flying status, but we’ll do what we can to make it happen asap.

It was also a successful day of assembling gliders…
with the eagle-eye award going to Russell for finding the (well-concealed but right-where-they-were-supposed-to-be) bolts for the 1-26!  Both gliders are assembled and annual inspection complete, though the 1-26 needs one new bolt ordered, its tire inflated, and the seat back fixed.  And a nice polishing job on the wings would be nice too…

P.S. The volunteers will get to be first in line for being towed!
