Team Chesapeake – Left Wings In Place! [Photos]

Last week the left wing outboard cabane struts were welded and now we have them installed. We also have the support cables connected and the upper and lower wing is secured in place without any outside support! We are very happy to make it to this stage and our Nieuport 24 is looking good!

Want to give a shout out to some new student team members, Travis Parker and Anthony Ericksen. Welcome!

Join our school and help us make history with our Nieuport 24 aircraft build.

Last week the Aviation Institute of Maintenance – Team Chesapeake was working on the lower left wing aft support bracket. This week we completed the welding of the outside cabane struts. They turned out great! Like I mentioned before this is a hands on project with our students and there is a learning curve involved here but now we are working on the right wing and the learning curve is over. Please click on each picture to get a closer look at each item. Check back soon for more exciting pictures of Team Chesapeake’s Nieuport 24 World War One aircraft. We have the most fun here by far, than any other Aviation Maintenance School!

The Aviation Institute of Maintenance – Team Chesapeake is working on the lower wing aft support bracket. Once they get this support done and get over their learning curve they will be set for the right wing. They are making progress as you can see in the pictures. A little more welding should do it and then they can move over to the right wing. Please click on each picture to get a close up of the item. Check back soon for more exciting pictures of Team Chesapeake’s Nieuport 24 World War One aircraft.
