Well once again, with perseverance, warm jackets/ boots (and a little hot cocoa) the Anik G1 Team bands together and gets the job done!
It was a little “touch and go” there for a bit with the Antonov flight having similar weather delays and spending an extra 2 days in Winnipeg. But with the help of Khrunichev, SSL and many other unsung heroes, the Anik G1 satellite has been safely and successfully offloaded.
It seems the cold weather has also brought a good old fashioned “cold” virus to our team, but once again, the team has been strong and working together to make-up for lost time and getting our launch schedule back on track. Our motto: be strong, work hard, wash your hands often (and cover your cough!).
