ORIGINAL SOLUTIONS : FALCONS SOMETIMES SLEEP UNDER TENTS...
While located next to the magnificent Morbihan Gulf in French Brittany, the Vannes airport is not exactly designed to accomodate heavy maintenance duties since no hangar is big enough for Falcons.
Therefore, when DFS Ramps Service had to get there to support an AOG and change a Falcon 2000 engine, they had to find original solutions to protect both material and workers from the uncertainties of local weather.
The exchange engine and the crane necessary to remove and reinstall on and off engine travelled by truck from DFS. In the meantime, a specially designed tent was ordered and mounted through a local company whose usual business has more to do with large social events and spectacles than with aeronautics but the resulting roof was safe and sound. DFS Ramp Service specialists made the rest ant the engine change took place in controlled and safe conditions.
