Find the CG For Large Airplanes Accurately

Jerry Neuberger has a cool new toy:  The CG Wizard!  Have you ever tried to check the CG of a large airplane?  It can be a challenge.  With the CG Wizard it is easy and accurate.  The huge B-17 shown is in Frank Gagliardi’s garage.  It sits atop a large table on the CG Wizard’s three digital weight sensors, one for each wheel.  Those weights along with some careful measurements gives you the CG location.  More details of the procedure are shown below in the pictures.
