Asssembling the horizontal stabilizer – Part 9

We got a lot of work done this weekend. Kelly spent most of her time removing clecos and taping rivets in place, and I followed shooting the rivets. It’s amazing how quickly the work goes when there’s two working on it. More fun, too. Kelly also learned her way around the pneumatic squeezer. The 252 rivets on the rear spar alone gave us both some practice. There are a few more rivets right in the middle of the HS; those will be easier to get when we remove it from the cradle. During some downtime, we arleady started working on the elevator ribs.
