The keel has been fitted against the canard bulkhead that was installed by the factory, however. Also, we drilled 1/8″ holes in the aft section of the keel to access the torque tube bolts on the rear support.

Now that we’ve set the location of theĀ speed brake actuator, we’ve cut a 6′ diameter access hole just ahead of the section of the keel reinforced by foam to get at the actuator and it’s electrics.
