A workshop has been established in the cold port hall’s heated staff rooms. Even the old shower room has now got a new purpose as a workspace.
In the unheated large hall area some work can be done during the winter. Grinding and polishing of the aircraft fuselage is possible, but it can’t be painted during the cold season. Some grinding is necessary to remove a section of the white paint which in the former SAS paint scheme reaches down the sides of the fuselage. In the spring the aircraft will be painted to the Aero Oy paint scheme. The section which needs to be removed by grinding gets wider towards the tail of the aircraft.
Some dismantling and assembling will be done during the winter. The Pansio restoration teams aims to work every week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
