Test wing of MY-14 progresses

Lauantai 23.4.2016 - Reino Myllymäki


The production of wing ribs and fuselage formers of the MY-14 has moved to rapid stage in the VL Myrsky II restoration project. Since the wing is a quite complex structure with all inside equipment, it is deciced to build about two meter long test wing in order to test the installations and operations of inside equipments.

After the general meeting of the Aviation Museum Society on Saturday 9th April 2016 it was possible to get acquainted with the restoration project in the restoration room of the Tuesday Club at the Finnish Aviation Museum. Matti Patteri and other team members has assembled the test wing by using incomplete wing parts.

The incomplete center parts of wing ribs were joined to incomplete spars. Therefore it was easy to shape the wing. One half of the flanges and two of three waists were lacking from spars. The wing ribs that will be assembled to the test wing are surplus parts.

It is planned that the test wing will be converted to a demo wing later. The another side of the wing ribs will not be covered by plywood and the wing will be covered by polycarbonate plate instead of plywood. The demo wing will help people to understand the structure of the wooden wing of the 1940s.
