SIM's Cessna 182 is on its way to Africa!

You may remember, if you follow our blog or receive our newsletter, that I had the opportunity to do some work on a diesel Cessna 182 for an organization called SIM. I installed wing extensions, shoulder harnesses, and some reinforcement kits on the airframe. So it was exciting when the ferry pilot stopped by MMS on his way to Bangor, Maine this past week! From Bangor, he was headed across the Atlantic and eventually down to Africa, where this airplane will serve with SIM.

Here is a short video I put together showing the airplane, complete with survival gear and 100 gallons of Jet A (yes, this airplane burns jet fuel) behind the pilot's seat. Please pray for safe travels as Bill makes his way to Niger to deliver this plane to the mission field!
