The LeTourneau University Missions Team Arrives

MMS is blessed to have an ongoing relationship with LeTourneau University's School of Aeronautical Science. For nearly every Spring Break since 2003, a missions team of aviation students and students interested in aviation has traveled from their campus in Longview, Texas to spend a week helping us maintain, modify and repair missionary aircraft. The team for 2009 arrived yesterday evening and is already hard at work in our hangar.
