New Wright “B” Lookalike Wing Panels Completed









All four of the new Wright “B” lookalike wing panels arrived at the Wright “B” hangar in January 2017.  Construction of these wing panels began in February 2016 at the EAA 5 facility in Middlefield, Ohio under the leadership of project manager, Curtis Cook.  After designing and building special tools for use during the wing-panel construction, all parts were completed, assembled and shipped to the Wright “B” Flyer hangar.  To read more about the construction of the wing panels, click here.
