The Unexpected

A pilot must always be prepared for the unexpected. Anything can happen at any time while up in the air. Proper trusted maintenance is always one of those things you may take for granted. Here at MMS we never take anything for granted and we do everything we can to be diligent in the work we do. But sometimes things happen that are outside of your control and a pilot needs to be ready for what ever comes there way.
Recently we had one of the ministries we serve have one of these unexpected circumstances. Gospel Carrier International's Chief pilot and president was flying on his way to MMS. When he reached 22,000 ft the inner passenger windshield exploded from the pressure. He immediately descended to a lower altitude to take pressure off the windshield and safely landed at MMS where we inspected and repaired the windshield. Here is a sequence of pictures of that repair.

All finished and ready for flight
