Another busy weekend with tank work!

We have managed to get more fixings and fittings in place which included clearing space over the number two tanks… This was to allow checking of the fixings for the float switches and vent pipes… There really isn’t a lot of space up there but after moving some equipment, access was gained… Each week the tanks are looking more and more complete so a few more Saturdays and we should be there…. We were also able to free the 450s from the mounting plate that we removed from 319… Hopefully these spares will be serviceable…
Work was also carried out by Matt in making templates for the gaskets for the numerous fixings in the fuel tanks… Pics can be seen in the collection…
We also had a visit from the PCB (Planes Camera and Banter) Facebook group who were treated to a systems demo..
We were also visited by a couple who attended our Members Day and they were kind enough to send some pics which we have included in this update..
In the morning, we were able to test some headsets that had been playing up… After being cleaned, we now have a few more spares!
