Wow that's a nice insight!
Thank you for that and keep up the great work.

If I may, I would love to see more pictures of the tug. It is such an impressive piece of truck.

Whoa! Thanks Clive! Those are awesome shots!
Really appreciate the extent of your effort to get me some detailed shots, especially of the grabbing/lifting thingamabob.

On the other end, those cars sure are pretty... Typical Lux merchandise Razz
If we are in recession, the money lacking has to end up somewhere right? It did not vanish...
I read somewhere that 2010 had already broke some kind of record in the luxury vehicle sales. I guess 2011 isn't going to suck for some of us after all.

Anyway, thank you very much Clive.

Sometimes, the freight we carry isnt quite as salubrious as the fine cars we see........




Who said pigs cant fly Laughing
Lastly, one shot from the ramp tonight, Saturday 19/11/2011:

A few more ramp shots, this time showing the de-icing rig at 6am this morning 21st November 2011.
As can be seen here, the operator is climbing into the upper cab to start the de-icing. From here he can actually drive the whole rig around the aircraft:




Finally, another shot of the -800 just before it departs:

Wow, this must require a pretty good coordination from the operator to move the truck around the plane from up there!
Thank you for that informative report.

Yes, the de-icing rig operator does it all from the upper cab with no ground co-operation so he has to be very careful!
