Maintenance in the field

We are often asked how we can operate without a hangar nearby. When we describe how we can do our maintenance and inspections by using these platforms that winch up to the engines and allow the mechanic to move around with the airship on the mast, we often get rather incredulous stares!

Last night, the 100hr inspection was done on our rear engine in exactly this way, so here are a few pictures of mechanic, Will, finishing up with the sunset while on the field at Long Beach. I've included a full ship shot to give you some scale.
