Fuselage Started 3/5/2007, Hours to date: 107.5


 

Fuselage was ordered 10/04/2006, and arrived in two large crates on 12/5/2006. Delivery was smooth and on schedule with what Van’s had informed me of. Working on the fuselage is a lot of fun, as you can really start to see the shape of the airplane come together. It also provides new challenges, as the parts and assemblies are quite different from how the wings and empennage were created.
