00 FEB 10       ..

            Larry VANCE also advised that they had located a hangar in Ottawa quite close to the TSB Lab.  It is old and large, about four times the size of Hangar A, and would be capable of storing all of the material from the recovery.  However, it is unheated and without electricity.  He commented that while they would store the materials in the hangar, they would have to move the materials that they wish to work on over to their lab.  It would seem that this is yet another reason for not moving the investigation to Ottawa, as there is no suitable building in which to work.  That hangar would be a totally unacceptable environment in which to work, due to the cold and then the heat & humidity of summer.  The deterioration of the exhibits would be rapid.

            During the evening, wrote up a test plan for the seawater wire testing.  It is located in file \AES REPORTS & TABLES\SEAWATER TEST WIRE PLAN.DOC.  Note that this file will be edited as required until the test is carried out, at which time it will be added to these notes.

(Clarification:)    Vance's comments were during a TSB weekly meeting in the hangar on this date.
