Hugo’s Last Day…

I just realized that this post never “posted” when I made it while we were still in Papua…  So here it is just a bit later than intended…

Hugo had his last official day of work with MAF here in Papua.  Usually when pilots have their last flight with a program the tradition is to douse them with water upon exiting the plane after said final flight.  Hugo was the Maintenance Operations Manager, not a pilot.  However, at some point he’d been checked out to do run-ups on the planes.  This is done after an engine is rinsed with water to heat the engine up therefore drying any water that might still be inside.  When doing this Hugo would “drive” the plane around a little bit.  So after his last run-up on his last day, the guys were ready with water and hoses…  I had an idea I might get soaked too, and it happened…

The dousing was followed by lots of photos and then rootbeer floats and fried foods in the hangar.  A fun way to end a final day of work here!
