First attempt at wing folding

Getting ready for the display this coming week I need to be able to fold the wings so that it fits on the newly designed trailer.

Once we had the jury struts in place and rock steady we pulled the pins on the first wing and gently supported and eased it back. It swung very freely and easily and tucked neatly under the fuselage and then stopped as it touched the tailwheel. I decided that was too far back so braced the wing struts to enforce a spacing that kept the trailing edges away from the tailwheel.

And then back out to prove it all goes back in to one piece
