It is finally happening. We are getting flights! The very first LC-130 of the season just landed. It carried a bunch of firefighters and our ARFF vehicle, both now a requirement for any passenger flights.
My toasty fellow winter-overs were supposed to leave on this flight but because of some minor mechanical problem they won’t be taking any passengers back. Let’s hope that the weather holds and everyone gets out on the second LC-130 flight of the day.
