Hangar Internal Construction Ongoing: Part 4

Electrical power was completed this month.  Special thanks to   Leroy Vann for his special efforts.  Leroy is a master electrician.

Preston Sewell takes a breather from "mudding"
the sheetrock seams and holes.  Lighting has 
been added throughout the hangar and the 
ceilings have all been covered.

Lt Col Will Hargrove stands at the entrance 
to the communications room. The "commo" 
room is dedicated to housing the unit's 
radio equipment and will no doubt be one of 
the focal points of future, Gwinnett-hosted, 
search and rescue exercises (SAREX)

View looking inward from the main entrance

The cavernous airplane hangar dwarfs the 
four members who are barely visible near the 
center of the wall.  On the other side of 
the wall are the meeting spaces and classrooms.

The gaping hangar-end still needs a door.

Full external view of the hangar-end.  Hopefully a hangar-door manufacturer will 
donate a door someday soon.
