Aviation career school students build wings for Sopwith Camel

Work continues on the upper wing for the WWI Sopwith Camel aircraft at this aviation career school in Manassas. Several spar boxes for the plane have been completed, painted and fitted. The metal struts are finally being attached where the wings of the Sopwith Camel join together. The student volunteers continue to work on finishing the clips.
