Mongolia: Minus 37 – That’s REALLY cold!

 

mongoliaminus37With UK temperatures now starting to creep below zero, spare a thought for our team constructing a REIDsteel designed aircraft maintenance hangar in Mongolia.

Temperatures there have dropped as low as minus 37 degrees centigrade!

At these kinds of temperatures things freeze fast, and the locals have developed some interesting methods for keeping their vehicles in service!

The cold also required some method adaptation for the REIDsteel crew.  Materials behave differently, and jobs that are normally straightforward  become fiddly when wearing gloves, but if you take your gloves off and touch metal with bare skin it will freeze and stick!

Despite these hardships, the team have done a great job and are due to complete on schedule.

Another Hangar Tall Tail

1318931646With many planes getting bigger and bigger, some soon outgrow their hangar. However, there is not always the need to build a totally new one – just a new taller tailgate door & housing did the trick when we upgraded a hangar at Bournemouth International Airport to accommodate a Boeing 747-SP which stands nearly a full metre taller than the standard 747.

Friday 30 September 2011 saw the resident 747-SP move into the newly modified hangar at Bournemouth International Airport.

Our original building was designed for FR Aviation to convert VC10s from commercial aircraft into fuel carrying tankers and also had a tailgate door to allow a standard 747 to enter.

1318931619The most recent requirement was to house a 747-SP which is, […]
