Building the Chinook

Construction de notre 



Étapes  35A et 38A

Installation of front window tubes
Installation of front rudder pedals
Finished the installation of the front window tubes.  This was somewhat tricky since both tubes didn't have the same curvature.  They seemed to come from two different fabrication processes as one had a dull finish (left tube) and the other one had a shiny finish (right tube).  A little "bending" was required to get the middle tube horizontal.


Over the Ottawa river in winter.  Quite a view!

  The perfect adjustment of the middle tube was worth the effort... it looks very good now and when you think about it, the horizontal tube will line up nicely with the horizon and make it easier to fly our Chinook.
