Putting the Fuselage on the Landing Gear

The hangar is almost done, and the poor airplane has spent most of the summer in the trailer.  When we get ready to move it out of the trailer and into the hangar, things will be much easier if the fuselage can sit on its own feet.  It took a little bit of time to look over the plans and locate the bolts, but now it’s all done.  There is quite a difference in height with the airplane on the landing gear, especially with no weight to stretch the struts.  Now it’s taller than I am, and it is easy to see why Richard wanted to take the gear off for working in his garage.
