Aft Fuselage Attachment
In December 2005, the aft fuselage was attached to the forward fuselage. This was remarkably finicky work as the aft fuselage had to be carefully slid between stringers and the exterior skin. These photos show two Saturdays of work to make this attachment - including installing fasteners on a very cold December afternoon. Photos courtesy of Rick Lund.
