More on the Aircraft Delays

So, here's what the current delay is all about:


Teledyne Continental Motors, Inc. (TCM) has verified several instances of rapid wear on the surface of hydraulic lifter units (tappets) both in new and rebuilt engines and hydraulic lifter units sold as spares beginning on 19 June 2009. TCM is investigating the cause of the rapid wear and has seen it as early as five hours of engine operation after installation. Loss of engine power and a potential safety of flight issue can result.

So, we're very happy that this problem has reared its' ugly head while the aircraft was still in the states. As much as I wished the aircraft could boogie on over to Africa and get into service, our faithful Lord has shown that he is sovereign. His timing is always the best.
