  4. SNB-5 Maintenance Update for October

    by Col Dan Bishop, Safety Officer

    It is looking like the Mile High Wing could be back to flying soon. If you are interested in being part of the ground crew (marshalling, towing, fire watch) please let me know and we will get together at a convenient time and place in the near future.

    At the October general meeting in Midland I received the Individual Maintenance Award. To call this an Individual Maintenance Award is not correct. I have been in Aircraft Maintenance now for 25 Yrs. You cannot do the amount of work we have completed as an individual.
