Repairing a broken tail boom on a full scale glider


Thought this was cool because the construction of full scale gliders is so much like our moldies. Damn, that's a lot of work though!

Wait, you mean he didn't just use expanding foam and CA like the guy on the Sunbird thread?

Very cool video.

As an A&P myself, I was very impressed with their work.

I think they injected the foam, off-camera, right before indelivery..... They just don't want it going to our heads that we're just as good as they are.

Little do we realize the guy in the mask was Brian Laird...

But maybe the more important question is how the heck do you a break a tailboom like that on a full scale glider? Hidden rock in the LZ?
