Work Session 3/9/2012 - right wing taping session

Proving that our team is learning quickly, the right wing has received its tapes in one afternoon session and is nearly ready for the silver coat. Pictures below show the good teamwork exhibited at the Skunk Works this past week. Thanks J-P Bernoux for the pictures!

Great News! Van's original airplane, the RV-1, will make a stop at the Skunk Works during its tour of the country on April 22nd or 23rd. Read about the restoration and tour at this link. Stay tuned for details!
