Crew Chief's Update Log (Restoration Progress):
11/15/2007 - After a layout while the T-37 crew handled other duties, work continues on the T-37 'tail feathers' - the vertical stabilizier trailing edge has been cleaned and rudder attach points have been re-attached to the stabilizer. The USAF-installed locking device for the rudder and elevators (installed as part of the demilling process) has been disassembled, cleaned and reassembled). The vertical stablizer has been stripped and minor surface damage to the aluminum repaired.
05/30/2007 - Work continues on the tail section. New nutplates are installed on the horizontal stabilizer, and 1/2 done on the vertical stabilizer. We've removed the nutplates that cover the elevator trim tab mechanism and are cleaning up that area next.>05/19/2007 - Work continues on getting the T-37 fuselage ready for the City of Green parade. We're in the process of removing and replacing may of the nut plate fasteners that are on the tail section of the T-37.
