Apr. 8 ï¿½ The Waco UPF-7 was assembled recently to see if the uncovered wings, tail, and landing gear fit properly. Now the Waco is apart again. It took all five of the Rare Aircraft crew in Faribault, Minnesota, to get the wings off April 8. But before a Ceconite covering is added, there are additional steps that must be completed. Wiring, plumbing for the engine, and engine controls must be installed, steps that will take two months. Still to come are fabrication of the fuel tanks, straps to hold the tanks, and new windshield panes for the windscreens.
