March 2014 – Here’s what Mick, Tulip City Air Service’s Director of Line Services at WMRA remembers about this past winter.

“Throughout this winter we have deiced 72 aircraft. If you are not quite awake when you arrive at work, you will be soon when you are in an open bucket lift, 30 feet in the air, 5 degrees outside with a wind, spraying down an aircraft tail at 6:00 a.m! We’ve had 1,259 man hours of snowplowing to keep the airport up and running with many 13-14 hour days. We were never closed this year due to snow.”
