The weather gods smiled on the BPAG at Manston last weekend. Further progress made with stripping out D22 but there’s still a long way to go there. Front cockpit was relieved of its remaining parts, including the main panel and instruments. The latter have gone off site to be refurbished.
Elsewhere, both full sets of engine doors are now lowered and engine disconnection has started. Lateral control runs, hydraulic lines, electrical looms and left hand leading edge BLC duct have been removed. Access was also gained to the trailing edge flap actuators and these are scheduled to be removed at the next visit.
