More working hours has been spent on the workshop this summer than on restoring airplanes. 90 m² of a previously “cold” section of the building has got the same treatment as the rest of the workshop. A part of this area has become the carpenter’s workshop and the Tiger Moth airframe has already moved inn. It is about time to get started with the cockpit area.
