Shackleton taxy run - CVT

Postby CameronSys on Sun 29 Jan 2017, 10:26 pm

Hi all,

Yesterday Shackleton WR963 stretched her legs for the first time in a few months. Some nice weather in the morning, soon turned to showers during the taxy, but it was a great day regardless. Well done to the team on getting WR963 moving again after last year's issues :clap:

Slightly off topic, but a bonus pic taken while waiting for the taxy if that's ok...

I believe Cameron is a volunteer so is allowed airside. If you pay you have to stand behind the fence but I believe they are some holes cut out along it.

Correct, and I was escorted. Yeah there are holes along the fence cut out for lenses, and various sets of stairs etc allowed views over the fence.
