C17 Globemaster III build - full assembly check

This weekend saw me get the entire beast together in the garden for her tail alignments - something that I've been chomping at the bit to get on with, but weather and circumstance have not been in my favour.

All went well, and the rear carbon sleeves are now glued up, and are being integrated into the rear structure as a whole now.

I eye-balled the structure, then checked with a spirit level which wasn't needed.  It all looks to be within an eighth of a bubble / half a degree after final tweaks.

I also managed to do some work on the Fouga and the Ilyushin this weekend, but nothing big enough or interesting enough for pictures just yet.
