UPF-7 Fuselage Fixture

We are always looking for ways to raise our standard of “real history with new standards.” Locating and starting with a prime project has always been our starting point. Minimal damage history and thorough records are key. With that as our starting point we still end up doing a very thorough non destructive inspection of the fuselage. At the minimum we add gussets in accordance with WACO service bulletin #100 which eliminates the requirement for the horizontal bolt on brace at the bottom of the cabane strut (center section).
