Video: Arrival of the Arctic Barnabas Navajo

I previously mentioned the arrival of the Arctic Barnabas Navajo in an earlier blog, but here's video of the event with an additional clip of the start of the maintenance process. I already have other clips ready to edit that will show the project a little further along. The guys are really moving on with this one.

We're going to have the airplane for three months. In that time we'll send one engine and the control surfaces out to specialty vendors (we could have done the work here, but it would have taken longer than the time frame we'd been given), replace all the windows, fabricate and replace multiple aluminum skins along the belly of the aircraft, install a crew door in the cockpit area, repair engine cowlings, and conduct an annual inspection of the entire aircraft.

We intend to send this airplane back into ministry in Alaska before January 31, 2011.

A week ago.

As of yesterday
