Setting up in Houston

Since ours was one of the larger displays at the World Space Congress and were in the middle of the conference center, we were allowed to drive our semi-truck directly to our display area to unload.  This presented some logistical challenges, as we had to be the first exhibit in and the last out.

At each stop, we have been fortunate to have groups of eager and energetic volunteers to help us.  Here, Bill Haynes supervises a local team unloading our Flyer.

As with all tour stops, the first step of setting up the Flyer is to remove the center box section from the semi-trailer...
followed soon after by the canard structure and the display panels.
