Work was done on the fuel and oil tank this week. The oil tank is temporally secured into the proper position for a dry run fitting. One item that came up with the fuel tank is that since we originally welded the tank on the outside when we placed the tank in the aircraft it did not sit properly because of the weld bead. We went ahead and re-welded the sides from the inside and removed the bead on the outside. Now the tank fits well sitting on the angle iron. Mr. Joe Eggers an A&P instructor and project manager for our Nieuport 24 is helping Anna Brown with the ribs at the end of the spar in the first picture bottom row. The next picture is Anna and Pete Legarski with rib work in action and the last picture Kevin Mulrine is placing some sand bags to help form the plywood for the leading edge.
