Today we continued on with the Horizontal Stabilizer. Front Spar and Rear spar are now complete and the ribs have been drilled, deburred, and dimpled. After Taylor got the rear spar of the vertical stabilizer together, Jack and I did our first rivets and by the end of the day, finished riveting the Vertical Stabilizer!

The day started with cleco’ing the Rear Spar together. Getting the bends right was an interesting experience.
