Can anyone help me and tell me why my loft isn't working?

I've tried everythng i can think of but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I'm trying to make the Vertical Stabilizer but it won't loft for me.https://cad.onshape.com/documents/4796893c732f2fa33f8f16d5/w/024cf3a211bcdf9bcd102edd/e/611cd4634367ecb38310f337

    It will help to add a slight radius here:

    I'm not sure what your end goal is with this model, but if you want high quality surfaces for aerodynamic reasons, you probably want to break this down into a few areas. I would model the middle of this first (roughly bounded by where the leading edge is straight) and then build the top and bottom off of those surfaces.

    You generally want to build from your areas of least curvature first, and add higher curvature details after. If you try to loft this all at once, you're much more likely to get ripples and artifacts.
