The Nimiq 6 spacecraft (SC) arrived at Yubileiny Airfield on schedule on 16 April.  It was a sunny and a bit chilly day, but operations at the airfield were completed and the SC arrived in Hall 103A safely.  The satellite is healthy and currently in standalone operations in Hall 103A, while the launch vehicle is sitting in Hall 111 undergoing final checkouts. After this first hectic week of preparations and equipment moves, everyone is settling in to the choreographed schedule of launch operations.
