Convoy!

Brian sent us this picture of the convoy on the road from the airship. Here you can see the Mercedes mast truck, the Ford 450 dually with the fuel trailer and water ballast and one of the 350's with the platform trailer. There are two other trucks in the convoy including our maintenance trailer. There is also a second mast truck which, while a permit issue is being sorted, is currently being transported on a low loader. You see, a truck that's also part of an aircraft, well, there isn't a check box for something like that...

Does this mean that the Mast Trucks also require more stringent maintenance than a regular vehicle?

yes. the mast head system in particular has to be regularly tested and checked.
