Learjet 60 Delta Fin Replacement

The right delta fin on a Learjet 60 was damaged in a towing incident.  The aft corner just lightly touched "something" and put a crease in the upper and lower surfaces of the fin. 

The aircraft was ferried to SGH for repairs.


First, the dimensions of the old fin and the left side are measured for reference during installation of the new fin




A Jig was built to support the fin at the proper angle






Driling out the rivets in the old fin








Old fin removed, cleaning and double-flush riveting the holes






The drag angles stay on the fuselage, every other hole was double-flush riveted - the new fin is installed with nutplates and NAS screws



Don Elliott prepares the fin for painting
