Special Guest Ethan Rondestvedt

Today Von Armstrong, Steve Wallace,  Ed Shadle, Sean Rondestvedt, Lars Pedersen, Andrew Kirk, Cory Mitchell, Les Holm, Keith Zanghi and Steve Rima met for the first time in 2018 to work on the North American Eagle®  Special guest today was Ethan who multi-tasked and was able to check out the cockpit and eat  cookies at the same time!  He had fun and did all kinds of little boy things.  We know he had fun because we had to wash all the grease from his hands!

Great day today!

Steve Rima and Ed Shadle did a routine start cart run

A quiet day as the team did some routine preventative maintenance in the shop.  Next week we will install the front wheel in the Eagle and install a set of brand new drive wheels for the overhead crane in the race car transporter.  We thought you would enjoy a video from our sponsor S&S Turbine Services.  Using the a cut-away of the J-79 the narrator does an excellent job in describing all the components of the jet engine.  Click on the photo above and it will take you to the YouTube video.
