Will the Shack ever fly again ?
After a comprehensive risk analysis, the unfortunate answer is no for a multiplicity of reasons. :(

Deteriorating spares availability, age and maintainability of systems, low available airframe/spar hours, age of existing qualified air/ground crew, too few hours and funding available to train new air/ground crew, low interest in volunteering (over)time from service members, etc, etc.
Thanks Dean ... sad :(

Lionel Ashbury

Good-day folks. I'm posting the following notice well in advance: Regetably, there will be NO engine ground run next Saturday, 27 October 2018 and, for now, no ground runs will be executed until further notice. The reason being, is that there are certain administrative aspects that need to be addressed. This, in itself, will take some time. We kindly request that you will bide time with us, until that, which needs to be completed, has been dealt with. Having said that, we are hereby not going to go into detail and no negotiations or explanations will be entered into.

We trust and hope that you will understand. We regret any disappointments that might have been created. Thanking you.
Until next time, kindest regards and God Bless.
How come every time my ship comes in I'm at the airport?
