Gordon's Shongololo

On Wednesday evening at the Shongololo Building Group Gordon had the privilege of opening the wing moulds of his Shongololo.

Cracking the Moulds

The moment of truth

The smile tells it all

To reveal a beautiful wing

After that it was back to work and we laid up the fuselage and joined the stab halves. These parts will come out of the moulds next Wednesday. More photos will follow!

We look forward to seeing it in the air soon.

Well done Gordon!

Gordon has also promised us that the week his Shongololo is completed (which is Wednesday 25th April) he will fly his Sangoma on the following Sunday! Everyone is invited to witness this historic event and to offer help and encouragement. Go Gordon Go!

Progress report:

Tony's Shongololo is nearing completion. The fuselage is almost complete and the Stab is on and working. This weekend he tells me he will be doing the knuckles on the Flaps and Ailerons. Then comes the hinging and connecting everything up. Should be a week or two before she is ready to fly.

I have not heard from Hannes for a week now so can't say how he is progressing unfortunately!
