And so it came to be this week at Wilkins: another reason for cheer and merriment. Firstly, because it was our star mechanic’s birthday – Pete, or Hoot as he is better known down here – was the recipient of a fine choc ripple cake shaped like an owl no less. Very clever are we at Wilkins!
The other reason for the positive vibe in the Wilkins camp is the gents have the runway ready for action! With a weekend blizzard forecast the men hooked in and did some big days while the weather allowed and the result is a runway that is ready for flight one with marking complete, surveying complete, landing lights set up and the surface has been groomed to perfection.
Worth mentioning is the great support we have received from station and our support from family and friends at home through the setup phase, we now look forwards to the next change, which is the arrival of fresh faces.
