Engine Icing Aircraft Time-Lapse

In a hangar in Mojave, Calif., a Gulfstream 2 jet is being modified to carry more than 20 meteorological instruments for the Fire and Ice engine icing research flight campaign. In this time-lapse video, workers are installing a black radar fairing on top of fuselage, mounting and checking the fit of the pylons to hold the instruments on the wings, mounting instruments on the nose, and installing wiring through the aircraft’s belly.  credit:  NASA
