Making an aircraft tug operational is certainly significant. The thing is huge and quite surely a complex machine contrary to the general impression that it just has a huge engine and is big.

Arshad, do you think it's standard approach to bring back aged equipment to the life. I know with one angle it's an achievement but from other perspective it's risky to use machines which are obsolete and being refurbished by local mechanics without taking care proper QC practices?
Just take a look on the quality of 2 buses which are being refurbished. Also; I was thinking about conveyor belt truck. This may lead to huge loss if it breaks or anything happens.
We have already seen several incidents in a while of hitting ground equipment to the aircrafts and making significant damages.
