Canopy frame

Build hours: 449
Plan note:
Don't do anything to the canopy area without the canopy. Almost every dimension on the canopy bow and canopy installation plan sheets appear to be more of a suggestion than actual working dimensions:(

Picture: Chuck Yeager checks canopy fit

There are lots of angles and dimensions to be monitored during the canopy/windscreen/turtledeck construction. We finally decided to clamp up the frame and canopy on the plane and then tweaked and adjusted until we had an acceptable fit. More to come as we continue the canopy building. The UC is really starting to shape up!
