The Antenna in the Luggage Hold
When a new plane arrives at the American Airlines maintenance hangar, the first thing they do is dig in to install the Wi-Fi. The antenna goes into the luggage hold, so a few things need to be removed before installation.
Riding Godzilla to the Top of the Plane
There’s an antenna on the bottom of the plane, and one on top. The guy who installs the one on the bottom gets to sit in a chair, but the guy installing on the top rides a thing they call Godzilla! There’s a lot of stuff on top of a plane, and I let you know what it all does.
Even Airplanes Have Network Closets
Inside the plane, in very tight quarters, the computer equipment gets installed. Not just a great place for packing tech, it looks like a nice place for a nap!
Wi-Fi Fittings in the Cockpit
The final piece of the puzzle is in the cockpit, where the first officer’s seat actually has to be removed to complete installation.
