Work Day 27th July 2019

Major task for the day was reinstating the Ward Leonards on their shelf at the rear of the T86 cabin. Not a straight forward task in the cramped conditions of the hangar but the team managed it. The Ward Leonards are very heavy so a lot of care was needed with lifting and moving. See the accompanying photo of the Ward Leonards back on their shelf.

Other work carried out on the T86 was further preparation of the internal wall ready for a repaint.

The Engagement Controller’s door and both door frames have been primed ready for a top coat.
