Bad news.......

"MISSION UPDATE:

We'll post a video update as soon as we can but here's the unfortunate situation. From Karen Hinton:

It's almost certain a cracked liner. That means new head and bank.
So, Ed in the P-51 and the Pilatus are heading back out right now for Narsarsuac, Greenland as the weather is still good. We will take the Sovereign jet to either Reykjavik or on to the UK. No word on if we are staying over one more night here in Goose or going on today yet.
Disappointment all around but the good news is everyone is safe and the planes are back safe. Repairs will be made to get Glacier Girl to Oshkosh, but it would not be prudent to fly a new engine over the Atlantic for the test flights."

So could you find out when the single-engine guys are coming to RKV? We've been waiting for them all here and it wouldn't be fun to miss the planes...
