Balancing Day

Monday, May 30th, 2011

Four new High Racks are getting balanced today. They get mass balanced, horizontally and vertically (the center of gravity needs to be between two main decks) and RF balanced so the signals don’t walk on each others of reset computers.

Release!

Today we’re building up vehicles. Four High Racks Away 53 to 56 are in the works. It’s been a busy year and looks like it’s just getting busier.

Still in Nevada

Monday, May 9th, 2011

We had storms, high winds and 400 miles recoveries, but we managed three successful flights and got them all back.  The team is slowly dispersing in planes, cars and trucks. We should see home sometime tonight.
