There are some really cool bits to this and some interesting side notes.
1. I saw this and I can imagine some of the comments folks make about the depot maint causing serious headaches if the crew that did the work did a
bad job folks mentioned in other threads about the birds they got back.
2. This may be completely irrelevant or may be just the crew they filmed, but the age of the folks doing the work was interesting. There were a
handful of young people, but most seemed to be in their 40s or 50s. Am I reading too much into that?
3. The DL is NOT a shy girl it seems. Must be the payloads she's shy about. I guess that's because the bird is so old at this point and I'd
guess the major powers have ALL stolen the plans at this point for the airframe. Except the Germans. They never do anything like that
to their allies.
1. What do they do for the replacement wings, etc when they do this sort of maint? Boneyard?
