"What are we going to do?" they asked.
"Something really cool," I said.
"Can I bring my i-pod?"
I forgot how kids think these days. They don't go anywhere without an "i-something".
I told them that they were going to witness a historic event. We were going to install the upper wing on the Jenny and they were going to be a part of it.
"Why is this so historic?"
"The wings have never been put on the fuselage before."
"You're weird, dad."
Geoffrey (left) and Graham (right) volunteered to lift the wing root.
Ron held the tip. After the pins were installed, Ron crawled up the ladder and the struts were installed.
We paused for a family photo after the plumb lines were taped to the upper leading edge of the wing. We were pretty close to the 16 inch stagger.
A view from the balcony.
That's it for tonight. Hope to have the other upper wing installed soon. Till then...
