Domes Arrive, Hatches Assembled for DeepFlight Dragon

June 26,2015

This week the domes for the Dragon arrived from the UK. These are what fit over the pilot’s and passenger’s head so they can see everything underwater as they fly. The team worked on assembling the hatches and fitting them to the pressure hull, and unpacking the domes.

The DeepFlight Dragon is starting to take shape!

The hatch assemblies have been fitted onto the pressure hull. This allows you to open and close the domes—an important feature.
