Continuing work on Rudder

Stiffeners all in a row

Was a gorgeous day today. Cooler than the previous couple days, which made it into the 80’s! Today the temperature leveled out around 70, and so we headed to the hangar to pick up work on the rudder. Today we cut and polished the remaining 8 stiffeners (left side). Sheila took care of dimpling all of them while I started working on deburring the skin. Earlier I had match-drilled the stiffeners and the skin.

Next up is finishing deburring the other skin, then CAREFULLY dimpling both skins. Afterwards, it’ll be time to load up everything, and the compressor, and head back the house for priming.
