Carina 21st January 2022:
The Ipswich team have been cracking on this week with the hugely physical job of replacing the ring frames in the engine bay. The timbers are glued and laminated into position then copper nails and roves are put in. This involves someone hammering from the inside while the other person clenches up from the outside. Some of the bolts to secure the timbers don’t have a long enough thread so they have to be extended by hand.
Meanwhile the engineering team have been servicing the engine.
