Museum Specialist Scott Wood demonstrates a "Five-Tuck Navy Splice" as part of the first anniversary festivities of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia on December 11,2004.  This splice is one of only two splices approved by the Civil Air Regulations for use on control cables over 1/16 inch in diameter.  The work is complex and technicians are cautioned that "a number of practice splices should be made before doing any of this work on an airplane which is to be flown"..Credit: Ron Sachs / CNP.(RESTRICTION: NO New York or New Jersey Newspapers or newspapers within a 75 mile radius of New York City)
