We arrived at the Basler facility on Monday morning as the airport was recovering from the nation's largest annual aviation event. Our tour was arranged by Matt Hauck (right), Director of Maintenance and Production, who met us in the lobby during a break in his work assisting the airport with moving aircraft in the aftermath of AirVenture. The tour was conducted by Wing and Flight Controls Lead Hans Wagenpfeil, seen below during our visit to the machine shop. You know you are in the world of the DC-3 as soon as you walk through the front door.
