No Tornadoes In Sight

Yesterday evening's "tornado watch" came and went without seeing any tornadoes in Coshocton County. I'm reminded that in California people pay to go whale watching and quite often see whales. In Ohio it's fine by us if we have a tornado watch and don't see any tornadoes, ever. The price paid to see whales in California is far less that what's paid when we see tornadoes in Ohio.

Tornadoes and whales aside, paint is hitting the side of the Honduran 206 fuselage.

Scott shoots the second coat of red.

Josh has begun the CMML engine build-up.

The crankshaft and connecting rods.

Andy and Tim continue drilling and driving their way through the Bazilian horizontal stabilizer modification project.

Andy bucks while Tim drives some #8 rivets.

But not all maintenance around here has to do with airplanes. Dave, our facilities manager has his hands full all day most every day taking care of the grounds as well as every aspect of our 18,000 square foot facility.

Dave makes repairs to our water system control station.

If you ever want to come on a missionary airplane watch, feel free to stop in. We'll get you a chair so you can sit, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of mission aviation maintenance. You can get closer to the airplanes than you can get to the whales, though there is a little less heart-pounding excitement than if an F5 tornado touched down in your neighborhood.

Thanks for your gifts and your prayers.
