Leah and I worked on the glider tonight, taking advantage of some warm weather we're having. I finished up fitting the frame piece and Leah worked on cutting out a piece of plywood for the filler piece on the left side of the fuselage.

We got an electric space heater which helped keep the temp above 50 F while we worked. Only supposed to get down to 46 outside tonight and back up in the mid 50's tomorrow. Here is the frame glued in place.

And here is the new support for the lower longeron:

And the filler piece next to the fuselage:

So we'll have to do some varnishing once the glue cures. Great progress made though! Jesse is here and after breakfast with the CAF tomorrow we will start Akasegelflugzeuganhangar or however you spell it.
