This vertical stabilizer section was salvaged from an aircraft maintenance facility in Virginia. A vertical stabilizer is part of the empennage, also known as the tail (or tail assembly) at the rear of an aircraft to provide stability during flight, in a way similar to the feathers on an arrow. This vertical stabilizer is composed of a framework of rigs and stringers clad in an aluminum alloy skin.
