The Skies the Limit

S3i are happy to have donated the stainless steel wire cable tensioning for the assembly of this Blériot XI aircraft.

Tom is lovingly creating a replica of the Blériot XI, made famous by Louis Blériot for making the first airplane fight across the English Channel in 1909.

We supplied Tom with a range of 2mm and 3mm stainless steel wire rope, eye bolts, crimps, ferrule crimps, crimping tool and wire cutters to help with his ambitious project.

We can't wait to see the finished aircraft.
