Visiting today was Glen Galati from Electronic Dimensions of Tacoma. Also visiting were Wolf and Pilar Czaia. long time friends of Ed and Team NAE. Ed brought in a load of assorted electronic parts he had stored at home. Glen is a retired US Air Force veteran and enjoyed his tour of the hangar and hearing the history of our jet car when it was a plane. He carted off a ton of old parts.
Today the team did a lot of work on ground support equipment. Time, weather, and desert dust takes its toll on everything we use. Trish and Don re-imaged some of the Lenovo ThinkPads.
Ed finished work on the second parachute canister and they were both put back on the car. Lars polished up wheels again today
