Installing Right Lower Wing – Team Chesapeake

Installing Right Lower Wing – Team Chesapeake [Photos]

The Nieuport 24 team has moved over from the left wing to the right wing. Team Chesapeake is working on the connection of the lower right wing to the fuselage. In the following pictures you will see the lower connection brace and mounting hardware. All these parts/materials are made here in our shop.

We have another new team member this week and we would like to “Welcome” John Dixon. John just started here at the Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) in Chesapeake, Virginia this past June. He is originally from Galax, Virginia. He said, in his town there were not many jobs available and since he always was interested in aviation he decided to come to our school. John said he has learned a lot and he likes his teachers. John is doing great in school and building/working on a World War One aircraft is extra special!

Please see the pictures below, click on them to enlarge and if you are looking for the best school to become an aircraft mechanic… look at AIM in Chesapeake, Virginia where you too can make history building a World War One aircraft. Come on by and take a tour!
