The repairs to Comanche XR9C have been coming along at a steady pace, and have been completed. Comanche is now awaiting a “paint job” for its new sections.
A few days ago, Comanche’s new sections were bolted together for the first time, and all looked good! The new fin can section fit together beautifully. I made some subtle but important design changes to the fin can to make it more durable in the event of a similar mishap in the future.
The parachute bay has also been repaired, and is also awaiting a fresh coat of paint. Comanche is on track for a March 2014 return to service flight.
