Day 3... In & Secure

I took a bunch more photos with my cell phone, but these are the only 2 that I could find. Enjoy!

Using a come-a-long tool, we slowly started the aircraft into the container. Here's Dr. Neil (in town on a layover from Bongolo to the states) checking the progress.

Here's Dale C. checking the progress from the back. The nose wheel remained on and, instead of wheels on the main gears, we had steel skids. On the left gear, we attached it to the 4 main axle bolts. On the right gear, the skid was attached to the post that had been welded on to the stub of the gear.

Tomorrow, we'll head to a local church to worship and have some time to rest in the afternoon. Monday, we'll put in the wings and padding throughout, fill out the paperwork, and have the container ready for Tuesday.
