Fuselage Construction

Over the last few weeks, students  constructed roughly a 1/2 scale wing. The purpose was to provide hands on learning about the basic structure of a wing. Continuing with that objective, we constructed roughly a 1/2 scale fuselage to go with the wing. The plan is to finish off the airplane with the empennage or tail section of the airplane.
