2008-09 Photos - Aircraft Fueling Module

(This is the AFM, the third of the three fueling modules, the other two--the VFM (for vehicles)
and EFM (for emergency fueling of the station) were piped up during the 2005 winter.)

Here's the AFM, which when finished will sit out near the flight line and pump/filter fuel going between the station and the aircraft. Since it will only be used in the summer, unlike the other two modules this one has passive solar heating.

By 20 January most everything was installed and buttoned up. The large red item in the middle of the floor is the fuel filter.

Have a look at the siding and other stuff.
