The helicopter crew is making awesome progress on the HUP with a nearly full application of exterior primer and interior detailing in full swing. They’ve also begun restoration of the blades and yes…they’re wood!

 

January 3rd Updates

Happy New Years everyone!

We had a rainy-day schedule this week with limited painting due to the weather conditions. The team continued with exterior preparation to include sanding, filling and roughing and will continue with this for the next week or so until actual painting can begin.
 
In the meantime, our graphics designer at the ship is hard at work creating the artwork for the specialized markings which will be painted on the aircraft in the coming weeks. Stars and Bars and warning signs are in production.
 
More soon!
