Chimoio hangar progress

In case you thought the Kodiak was all we had on our minds at the moment, we should just point out that a lot of work still continues at Mercy Air's remote base up in Chimoio, Mozambique.

Mercy Air is co-locating with SAM Ministries and has jointly built a house, airstrip and hangar on the property.

In 2011 the airstrip looked like this.
Then, last year, a team from the USA constructed a hangar.
This week a Swiss team flew up from South Africa to join 16 strong Mozambican workers and one Canadian, to pour the concrete floor.
It took 137 bags of cement and 13 hrs non stop work to complete just half of the floor.

Now the scene looks like this and it won't be too long before the paperwork is completed and the first aircraft is allowed to land there.
Thank you.
