Another weekend of tank work amongst other things! Following the inconsistent readings from the capacitance belts, the decision was taken to remove some and test.. First of all, this involved a dry test on a bench which was still inconclusive so the decision was taken to soak one in fuel for a week to test its reading then…
The water pump was also fitted back to the Sentinel tug and that’s one step closer to seeing her back on the taxiway!
Elsewhere, work started on identifying and curing a leak in the bomb bay door hydraulics..
Plenty to keep us occupied!
We also used the refuelling ground power supply connector which had been opened around the middle of last year.
