Last minute touches

The volunteers are all over the air plane for at least 4 hours before the debut.
Men are working on creating wires to hold the tail section.
The fuel lines are attached and the carborator is primed.  Others fastening tiny screws to hold a rubber
 gasket between the wings.
This was a very enjoyable experience to work with such a capable group.
