Finished HS and VS

A task that has been sitting around was completed today.

Both the VS and HS rear spars were not yet riveted for the inspection. We worked on many different things since and let the HS and VS sit.

For the AN426 3-3.5 rivets, the no hole yoke came in very handy. First the rear spar is riveted to the understructure with the larger AN470 -4 rivets. Then the skin is riveted on. And finally some blind rivets attach the center rib that is no longer visible to the spar.

The pirinciple is the same for HS and VS.

HS and VS are now considered complete :-) Although, the tip fairings are yet missing. We plan on doing them all at the same time on all empennage parts sometime in June.
