NASA work being done at airport

ANDALUSIA, Ala. – A NASA-owned C-130 is almost halfway through some modification work being done at South Alabama Regional Airport. The Kearns Group of Daleville and Pinnacle Solutions of Huntsville are doing electrical and structural work on the plane, which got to the airport in June. A team of eight has been installing an emergency communications system and routine maintenance is also being performed on the four engines. It’s being modified for NASA’s Atmospheric Carbon and Transport-America mission, which will measure atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane over the central and eastern U.S. during all four seasons.
