    I took my family today to see the Vimy before it departs for it’s trans-Atlantic flight. The crew are behind schedule and work was progressing at a fast pace. I was able to get some nice detailed shots.

    On a wood and fabric aircraft the fabric is stitched to each wing rib and then taped and covered with dope as you can see in this photo. Holes in the fabric are also repaired in the same way.

    Very well composed images. The tones and colour are exceptional. Well done!

    Also, I just noticed your location. I grew up in Port Perry. I've never seen anyone post from Brooklin before. Cool! :thumbup:
