Wing Brackets – Team Chesapeake [Photos]

Posted by on Jul 3, 2014

The Aviation Institute of Maintenance – Team Chesapeake is working on the mounting and installation of the cabane struts and aligning up the lower and upper wing on the left side of our Nieuport 24 World War One Aircraft. In the following pictures please see our first attempt to line-up the lower wing to the fuselage, the left support strut from the lower wing to upper wing, close-up pictures of the wing brackets, mounting areas and support cables installed on the front cabane struts. You can click on pictures for a larger image if you need to and check back soon for more interesting pictures of our World War One aircraft build by our Team Chesapeake students.
