ok so heres the deal for everyone who is wondering. the Brazilian CAA (civil aviation authority) has to do several inspections of the aircraft before they will allow it to be exported and deregistered. on one of the inspections there was a paperwork discrepancy on a part that was overhauled in another country (argentina) and so they are trying to take care of that. in the mean time we all just have to wait. the good news is we are getting all kinds of new stuff like windows and brakes and high wear and tear items as a result of the inspections. the bad news is we may not have it any time soon.

just for any one who doesn't know yet but this particular skyvan is not going to happen. After a physical inspection of the plane we found too many issues to make it viable.

I am having a meeting on wednesday to finalize the alternative. I will have an update then. Watch this space.

Ok, that video totally tripped me out.  Three nights ago I had a dream about going up on a load.  Instead of riding in the plane we were sitting on top of it.  I wish all my dreams were that great.
