Build Wing Stand & Fix Right Wing

So in preparation for transporting the wings down to the hangar to join with the fuselage, I decided to build a wing stand. This design was based on the one from the EAA website. I modified it slightly so that it can also carry the elevator and horizontal stabilizer.

Unfortunately, when trying to load it onto the trailer by myself, the right wing fell off and broke a couple of ribs. So, I got to practice my repair skills once again!

Finally, I got them on the trailer and secured them for the trip to the airport!

Total Time: 30.5 hrs.
