This weekend Steve Wallace stayed out of the limelight and the Eagle cameras as he spent most of the time in the Communications Van, putting in a new vinyl floor in the bathroom!  Next week it should be complete and we’ll have some photos then. The Comm Van is an integral part of the project where 3 million signals per second are coming in from the Eagle, along with communications from Aircraft and on the ground.

Lars, Les, and Cory were busy building brackets that will become mounts for a couple of 4 foot long LED Antennae from Buggy Whip®    They will be exposed to some 300 mph speeds; some real harsh testing.  Should make for a dramatic dusk afterburner run!  Ed and Keith were busy installing new decals for  Geomagic, Capture 3D, and Citadel Patent Law.
