The men (Garry, Kevin, & Kaleb) are busy and the inspection is moving ahead. There seems to be a problem with one of the parts, so Garry may not be able to fly the airplane to Puerto this week-- he may have to go get parts first. However, he often comments how nice this airplane is. It has flown less than 100 hours since being rebuilt after an accident several years ago, and the mechanics did a great job. Everything looks great! (I have tried multiple times to upload picture, but I'm having trouble with my connection. I may add some later!
Nellie is one of the blessings of being here in Lada. Her smile is always close to the surface and she is a great cook! We are so thankful that she is willing to come help us out for a week, doing laundry, cleaning, and cooking.
Another b;essing here is going to town and being recognized. NTMA has been at Lada for many years, and many people in town have been friends with different of the pilot families. Besides that, there aren't many foreigners in town, so we are easy to spot. Although greatly limited by our lack of Tagalog, we enjoy our intereaction with folks in town. It's also nice not to have to wait in line-- stores here are not crowded like they are in Puerto!
