Port side structure main elements mostly completed. Each station of two formers needs to be boxed in on the inside. Still quite a bit of detail work to go on this side.

Early Boomerang

The first five Boomerangs built had the top bar of the rollover truss straight as shown in the photo.
This unidentified frame (one of the first five) was sold to a fellow Boomerang restorer to help fund my project.
The clamp built into the end of the rollover truss holds the radio mast.
