Fuselage drilling and riveting the tail cone
The last two build sessions on the 750 have been great for motivational and visual progress. On Saturday we had a fairly small team there to work on the project, but it was Easter weekend. We were able to get all of the tail cone panels drilled, and all but the top skin deburred. With a smaller crew, I was able to jump in on some of the drilling!
EAA SportAir Workshop Coordinator Jennifer Bork works on deburring parts…
And then finishes up the morning session with some riveting on the bottom skin with EAA South Maintenance extraordinaire Jerry Paveglio.
The Wednesday session started with clecoing angle pieces back on the right side skin and deburring the top skin. Here EAA SportAir Workshop Logistics Coordinator, Lucas Hartwig and EAA Sign Graphics guru Jeff Benedict cleco angles under the shade of the TriMotor.
EAA MSR Brandon Scott and Pioneer Airport manager Jim Casper work away on deburring the top skin.
EAA Museum Educator/Administrator Max Platts works on riveting the right side skin…with three air riveters working away, this went really quick!
With both side skins riveted, the top skin was laid in place.
And by the end of the build session, we had the tail cone riveted together.
Next session will see work on the baggage area and more firewall work. This month is looking to be a great month on the 750!
