Whose Got Shiney Wings Now?

The Twin Astir went out of service on Sunday 15th April to have its wings refinished by Composite Components. Gel coat was sprayed onto the wings on Friday 20th and the wings were sanded back, undercoated, sanded back again, given a top coat of paint and finally lightly sanded back again on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of April. The wings have now been finished and are just about to complete their re-weigh before going back into service. The whole project was a massive job with over 100 man hours of volunteer labour contributed by a hard work group. Thank you to all those who got stuck in and helped out.
