Pack 'em up!

This week we prepared the QCF and F24 for shipment to Brazil. The guys came up with great ideas for packing the airplanes and implemented them perfectly. Fitting these two airplanes into a 40' container was a challenge and then some! Everything fit into place the airplanes have began their journey which will take well over a month. To St. Paul via truck, east coast by rail and to Brazil by ship they will go! Here are a few shots of the birds being loaded into the container. They have been checked, double and triple. An accelerometer and GPS have also been placed into the container so we can track their progress during the journey. It is now in the hands of the shipping company, we'll see 'em on the other side so now, back to work on making some more airplanes to fill the hole in the hangar!
