Working Weekend during the 14th October 2000.

During this working day it was decided to refit the new worst leaking window in TC1 V.I.P lounge.

The weather didn't help us in this task with frequent heavy rain hindering our progress.

Although it was originally thought that the windows in TC1 were about ready to fall out, we proved today that this is not the case.  It took us about 2 hours to remove the leaking window.

Removal of the window took a lot longer than we thought.

In order to cut away some of the window sealant, Steve made a cutting tool for the job.
