Vulcan XM603 storm damage update

The maintenance team did an excellent job repairing the storm damage to our Vulcan today.


A detailed examination revealed that the damage was thankfully not as bad as it first appeared. The wind had got underneath some aluminium sheets and ripped it off the rivets holding the sheeting in place. The aluminium sheeting was originally fixed to a badly corroded elevon during the restoration.




The first thing was to secure the sheeting with clamps so that the repair could be completed in very windy conditions.



The old rivets were then removed and replaced with new ones.
